November and December are tempting in every which way when it comes to dining. Between family meals, holiday parties and all of the treats that are bound to find their way into your office and home, the odds of overindulging and consequently packing on a few extra pounds are at their highest. I have a few rules of thumb I try to follow throughout Thanksgiving, December holidays and New Year's Eve so that I can kick off the New Year on the right foot.
