How Do You Avoid All Or Nothing During The Holidays? From Joy Bauer (WATCH)

How does health and nutrition expert Joy Bauer control her eating during the holidays? When Joy met with me on Mondays With Marlo, she told me that she "selectively splurges." Joy suggested choosing three special holiday occasions where you allow yourself to indulge. When you're at these chosen events, follow "the rule of one" -- eat one hors d'œuvre, one plate of food, one dessert and have one alcoholic beverage.
