Thus, you will avoid throwing body and soul on the food. You will be more willing to choose sparingly bites and portions of food while spoiling your taste buds.
2 – Alternate the alcohol with water.
The wine is good and it is time to enjoy it. Uncontested source of sugar and calories, alcohols of all kinds add to the food on the waistline. To enjoy the alcohol, always have a glass of water at hand. 1 gulp of water, 1 mouthful of alcohol. Better still, 2 mouthfuls of water, 1 of alcohol. By alternating fluids, not only will you avoid the barrage of the next day, but in addition you will not feel deprived.
3 – Move!
If it is not you who receive, offer your help for the service, the pickup of the table, the dishes. It is not the training of the century it is true, but it is still better than not to move at all. Then, while your hands are busy, you will be less inclined to nibble.
