The Super Bowl is one of the first obstacles of the year with your new lifestyle. Long gone are the days of gorging on chips and dip, pizza, hot wings, and copious amounts of booze. You’ve changed your way of thinking and this is a great chance to show everyone, and yourself, how your new lifestyle can be incorporated into any social situation.
Super Bowl Party Tips
If you’re attending a free-for-all party, there are a few ways to manage your way through.
Afraid you’re going to overindulge? Eat beforehand. Fill up on the things you know will keep you full throughout the party.
I know, I know, …the sheer horror, but you’re working on yourself, and unfortunately one drink can affect your metabolism and add unwanted sugar and calories, not to mention usually leads to yet another drink.
Get in a nice, hard workout in before you go to any party. It will boost your metabolism and prepare you or the caloric intake.
Bring your own snacks
This is where instant gratification comes in handy. You can find a multitude of alternate snacks online to suit your urges.
