It’s about hav­ing a plan to suc­ceed, says About Health’s Daniel King. “Set your­self up for suc­cess by making a writ­ten plan. De­cide now (yes, right now) what lim­its you’re set­ting for your­self. Don’t leave it un­til you are stand­ing over a heav­ing buf­fet ta­ble, no­body’s that strong!

“Writ­ing your goal, lim­its and in­ten­tion down com­mits you more fully to them, and pro­vides a use­ful re­minder of what your ‘best self’ ul­ti­mately wanted for you at a time of less temp­ta­tion. Some use­ful pa­ram­e­ters might be: • Re­sist all pre-meal snacks. • Stick to healthy por­tion sizes. • Avoid sec­ond help­ings. • Set a max­i­mum num­ber of al­co­holic

drinks. • Fill a plate once rather than

un­count­able canapés.
