Yikes – the average person consumes an extra 600 calories a day between Thanksgiving and New Years, which can turn into six more pounds as you welcome 2013. It’s not too late to stop a Holiday Food Grinch when they offer you high calorie treats at your next holiday party. According to WebMD, these lower fat foods are a much better choice:
- Whole grains, such as whole-wheat rolls, wild rice, and quinoa

- Salad greens (lightly dressed)
- Fresh fruit
