If you’re a sports fan, you no doubt have Super Bowl plans. Or perhaps you’re even hosting the big event at your house. Regardless, you need to have a plan in place to ensure that Super Bowl party doesn’t destroy all of your hard work when it comes to diet and workouts.
Here are three strategies you can use when it comes time for the big game. It’s important to have a plan of action going in.

I have an entire post about how to manage eating at parties, which includes tips on keeping yourself occupied. This makes eating more difficult.
2. Be mindful.
Do not eat as you watch the game and do not eat as you are talking to people. When you eat, focus on eating. Whether you’re munching on appetizers or sitting down to a meal, the easiest way to go crazy and lose track is to not be aware of when and what you’re eating.
3. Bring a healthy option and eat before you go.

Plan ahead so there are no excuses for not sticking to your eating plan. It goes without saying -- when you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
