Probably not. So why not make it a festival of "lites" this year? There are plenty of steps you can take for a pared-down version of the festivities. For starters, don't overindulge in fried foods every night. Turn those staples into sides and serve with fish or chicken that's not saturated in oil. Avoid coconut and palm oil - instead, opt for olive, canola or peanut oil, which are all higher in monounsaturated fats. Bake instead of fry wherever you can. If you do decide to fry, use a non-stick skillet and cooking spray instead of oil. And if you use oil, pat dry the foods on paper towels before serving.
