Celebrity Trainer David Kirsh Recommends Avoiding Sugary Cocktails

“Holidays shouldn’t be an excuse to disconnect your brain and your stomach. Enjoy them, but eat and drink sensibly,” says David Kirsch, celebrity trainer and nutritionist who has worked with stars like Heidi Klum and Anne Hathaway. “Avoid sugary cocktails and go for a vodka/soda or a glass or two of red wine, drinking plenty of water in between.”

Red wine: 114 calories per 5 oz. glass

You save: 49 calories per drink

Celebrity Wellness Coach Jackie Keller Advises Keeping your Hands Occupied

“Lightly grazing plates of food at parties is part of the unconscious nature of holiday eating and it all adds up. Trick yourself into allowing the brain to kick in and make healthy choices by occupying your hands with a glass of water or wine,” says Jackie Keller, celebrity wellness coach who has worked with stars like Reese Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron. “If you see a cheese plate and have to put down your drink before you can pick up the food and put it in your mouth, it can be enough to make you stop and pick the right food or not eat it at all.”

Cheese and crackers: 305 calories (8 crackers and 2 oz. cheese)
