The holidays are here in full force! From the first hint of Halloween candy to the last champagne toast on New Year’s Day – scrumptious food and sweet delights surround us! I was able to chat about holiday entertaining with Parker Wallace in a recent interview, and I also got a few tips on how to avoid holiday weight gain.
Having just lost 24 pounds, I do not want the holidays to derail my maintenance plan. I have learned how to stock my kitchen for successful weight loss, but the buffet tables at the holiday parties are a whole other situation. What I do not keep readily on hand in my kitchen (cheese, crackers, nuts, cookies) are always found at parties.
What’s a girl going to do?
Talk to Parker Wallace of course! Parker is the founder of What’s on Parker’s Plate and the author of “Eat Rich, Stay Skinny: A Girls’ Guide to Holiday Feasting.”

For me, I have made it through the month of November without gaining any weight. I’m planning on holding steady through December as well. Like Parker said, it is about treating ourselves to small indulgences, so we don’t feel deprived.
