Your Health: Avoiding high calorie holiday foods

Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -

      New research may help you enjoy your holiday gatherings and eat healthy too.  
      Scientists say the first food a person selects triggers what they take next.
      Researchers found that when healthy foods are seen first, people are more likely to select them and less likely to crave higher-calorie foods that may be farther down the buffet line.
     The study revealed that when healthy foods were offered first, 86 percent of the diners selected fruit. But when more fattening foods were seen first, only 54 percent took the fruit.
