PACK A SNACK
To avoid a drop in blood sugar and a craving for candy bars, keep a nutritious snack nearby. A plastic bag containing a low-fat cheese like Laughing Cow Light, which does not need refrigeration for a day, and two or three high fiber crackers is great. Or, sugar-free hot chocolate mix and an apple will warm you up quickly on a chilly day. Other snack options: soy crisps, a small amount of nuts, all natural peanut butter on a celery stick, or a container of fat-free yogurt.
SKIP THE BOOZE
