There's sure to be plenty of good food to go around as you gather with friends and family this holiday season, but how do you manage those sweets and salty foods with that diet you're on? Health and Wellness Educator at the University of Illinois Extension office, Caitlin Huth says it isn't a bad idea to take in a few of them but be mindful of how much you're eating.

Another tip for reigning in the amount of food you consume is to use a smaller plate. Huth explains filling a smaller plate and finishing it can be a way to enjoy what is available and also manage portions.
