ries that a six-ounce serving of prime rib delivers. For a starch, go with roasted red potatoes cooked in vegetable oil (100 calo- ries) instead of a baked potato with butter and sour cream (400 calories). Just making these simple swaps will leave you with room to splurge on dessert. May we suggest the pumpkin pie with whipped cream? It has about 220 fewer calories than two medium-size brownies because of its high water content. And at 340 calories, it’s a better choice than another popular holiday treat, pecan pie at 505 calories. (And, yes, that’s without the ice cream.)


Hanukkah Staple It’s not a Hanukkah celebration without latkes! But this traditional Jewish comfort food, potato pancakes fried in lots of oil, delivers 329 calories and 17 grams of fat in a pair. And who can stop at just two? Save about 200 calories per serving by making baked sweet-potato pancakes. Bonus: Sweet


potatoes have more fiber and vitamin A than white potatoes, and they are lower on the glycemic index, meaning they are less likely to spike your blood sugar.


Finger Foods Three pigs in a blanket (mini hotdogs rolled in dough): 400 calories


Twelve jumbo shrimp with cocktail sauce: 165 calories


Artichoke dip: 320 calories per serving, not counting crackers


Guacamole: 54 calories per serving, not counting tortilla chips. Bonus: Avocados are rich in heart-healthy monounsatu- rated fats. The holidays are for celebrating life, not


sacrificing taste. You don’t have to deny yourself if you practice mindful eating at the many opportunities the season presents. ¿

CALORIE-CUTTING TIPS


Keep your mouth busy … by talking. Engaging in good conversation reduces mindless face-stuffing.


 Use a salad plate. Studies show you’ll consume fewer calories using a smaller plate because large dinner plates encourage us to fill them.


 Turn your back on the buffet. Researchers have found that people who sit facing the buffet in all-you-can- eat restaurants are more likely to go for seconds and thirds. Fill your plate and then walk to a far corner of the room or to another room altogether to avoid temptation.


 Stunt sugar spikes by walking. A brisk walk after a big meal moves glucose into the muscles to help with metabolism, regulating blood sugar levels and may lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, according to a study in the journal Diabetes Care.
