Try To Avoid These Foods At Holidays Parties, From Lisa Drayer (VIDEO)

If you're going to eat healthy during the holiday season, Lisa Drayer, MA, RD, and author of The Beauty Diet warns that certain staple holiday dishes are very caloric. For example, pecan pie is extremely high in calories, around 400-500 per slice. Alcoholic drinks like egg nog can have anywhere from 300-400 calories in them, so be aware of how many of these cocktails you're consuming. Keep your holiday treats to a minimum, and limit yourself to one per day -- like a candy cane or small piece of cake. If you're watching your portion control, you can still enjoy all of the decadent holiday foods, without packing on the pounds.
