What to eat in a birthday party?

I have put a few kilos on after the winter season. I feel terrible, my pants and jeans are getting tighter and specially my right leg is the one that grows more for some reason.

I am thinking how I am going to do to get rid of this extra kilos when I have to socialize and enjoy at the same time.

This is what I do when I want to control my appetite, specially before going to a getting together. First I have green tea but not just one cup I do have at least two cups and If I am so hungry  I have a plate of protein (protein fill you up), like cheese and a cup of tea with a citrus fruit like mandarin, orange or kiwi fruit. Citrus have little contain of carbohydrates. What happens is like you will feel comfortable and not in a rush to eat whatever is in front of you.

When you arrive to the party or celebration, make sure you have a plate full of  fresh leafy greens, a little portion of carbohydrates(potato, rice, bread, couscous,pasta) like half size of the palm of the hand and a portion of protein. This could be animal source or vegetable source. I am vegetarian so I choose eggs in this plate.

So always remember be mindful when you eat and indulge yourself in healthy food.When you get the habit of eating healthy your craving will be less and your sugar craving will be less.

Hope this is useful.

With health & love!
