Prevent unwanted padding this season with the diet tips experts rely on to save their own waistlines
Practice two-bite bakingWho can resist baking in the winter? It fills the house with incredible aromas and just makes your place feel so cozy. Unfortunately, your body can also get the pillow-effect when you overindulge in the fruits of your labor. Katie Eliot, a registered dietitian and instructor in nutrition and dietetics at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Mo., knows how to make nice with her inner Betty Crocker:
"Before baking, I plan where I'm going to bring my batch of brownies or cookies. I'll decide if it's going to the office, my child's teacher, or a neighbor who I want to surprise. Then, before packing up the treat, I'll just take the equivalent of two bites. Those first two bites taste the best and satisfy my cravings without a lot of calories; after those first couple bites, you don't get the same rush."
