At parties and gatherings of family or friends, the temptations are many and we often eat more. Whether you’re dieting because you want to lose weight or simply maintain your figure, or you’re dieting because of some health problems, here are some recommendations for fun without getting fat .

  • Include desserts fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, watermelon, cantaloupe, in your yogurt or ice cream.
  • Decorate your desserts with fresh fruit.
  • The pies and cakes can be fruit or filled with applesauce, providing moisture and fiber to the recipe.
  • Consume desserts in small portions. Remember that what will be in a short time in your mouth, will linger in your hips and abdomen.
  • Instead of sugar, substitute them with low-fat sweeteners

To reduce fat intake:

  • Look for lean meat cuts and skinless chicken.
  • Eliminate fatty parts of the leg of pork or lamb before cooking.
  • Use skim milk instead of cream or whole milk.
  • Avoid creamy dressings or sauces in salads and dishes.
  •  Use cooking spray wax, to reduce the quantities used.
  • Use oil instead of margarine, butter or lard because they contain cholesterol.
  • Prefer fresh cheeses with lower fat intake: mozzarella, dambo, Cuartirolo, lean and ricotta.

To reduce the consumption of sugar:

  • Eat light during the day because the dinners are very abundant and usually high in calories.
  • Before you serve “everything”, put on the plate a lot of salad and vegetables.
  • No repeat. It is best to eat slowly and quiet, enjoying good company.
  • Add oats, wheat germ or bran in recipes to increase fiber.
  • Eat small, healthy snacks: smoothies, fruit, yogurt, cereal bars or low-fat crackers with fiber and water before dinner to help control anxiety.
  • Do not abuse the beer and cocktails, as they also are a source of calories. Note that beer contains 160 calories and a glass of wine about 70-80 calories.
  • To accompany your meal, opt for more natural water or diet soda.
