generous chistmas rellies

we all know it's going to happen - Nanna passes round the biscuits and forces one or ten on you, you're given the biggest box of chocolates you've ever seen by your aunt gertrude, the chrissy dinner host has made enough food to feed the entire third world and you are frowned upon if you don't 'do your bit'.

How do you get around the gifts and expectations with food?

I can almost guarantee I'll get a box of biscuits from the bloke's parents. They don't eat sugar becasue I think they're both allergic (his mum can't even eat apples!!!), so I can't even pass them round to get rid of them out of generosity!

write a list now of what you can eat, that won't make you gain weight. I found if I avoid things that contain flour I'm more successful.
My sister will carry around with her a plastic container of nibblies (just for her) it will have some chopped up apple some grapes some chopped up celery, carrot and capsicum.
When otheres have a cuppa and cake or biscuits just take out your nibblies box so you don't feel left out.

When my mother provides cakes and biscuits I just take one bite, then whilst they are all talking I quickly slide it over to Georges plate.

let us know how you manage

thats a good idea about taking one bite then giving it to yuor partner. i hate coffee, so i might nibble a chocolate and say ewww I got a coffee one, even if it isnt, lol and give it to him. I guess theres always the kids to give it too.
or when teh cookies come out, make a dash for the toilet, saying..ooh too much to drink, then when you come back the cookies will be all eaten!!

I love your sisters tip

Hi Dolly, I love what your sister does. Boy is she prepared having her own bowl of nibbles so she doesn't overeat on Chrissy biscuits, nuts etc. They say that if you don't plan you plan to fail. I guess your sister plans to succeed and is, especially when planning for days like that. Tell her well done. We can all take a leaf out of her book.

As predicted, the bloke and I got a big tin of choc chip bikkies for Chrissy!! :roll: My dad spied them and so there's a few gone. The rest will go in the bikkie jar for the bloke's lunch.

I think i did pretty well and only had maybe 1/3 max of the badness that was offered me.
