Walgreens offers this nice article by Diana Kelly about different ways to approach temptations to overeat, depending on how you tend to approach food:

— The Mindless Muncher: who needs a little more awareness and can benefit from choosing smaller plates
— The Disciplinarian: who has very rigid beliefs about food that can lead to anxiety — or feelings of guilt
— The Binge and Bounce Back-er: who can benefit from strategically placed snacks and gentler corrections if things get out of hand
— The Weekender: who treats social events as eating and drinking events and who sees any occasion as meriting a reward … with food

Kelly offers a handful of good suggestions for each style. This article is focused on helping you enjoy holiday parties without guilt, but the recommendations are good all year long.
