If you gather your friends for a party – this means a lot of sitting and eating, up to 2,400 calories, says Deborah Malkoff-Cohen, RD, a certified diabetes educator in New York City. “My key recommendations are to never go to any party starving or you will overeat everything,” she advises. She recommends having a small meal that’s heavy on protein, like eggs or tuna fish, before the party starts. “It will digest slower and keep your stomach full to help curb those cravings when the wings show up.”
