What are ways to avoid appetizer's at parties?

The number one way I avoid the temptation of appetizer's is to chew gum.  It makes me feel like I am somehow still "eating" something and I am less likely to get rid of it to try the spread of food.   This usually works and then I don't feel guilty later that I ate the food.  Typically appetizer's are never healthy so I'd rather not waste my time.  I come to the party after I have already eaten.  Then I am full; when I am very hungry this is usually when I "fall off the wagon" and lose control.  If I do happen to still be hungry I hope that there is a veggie tray so I can at least munch on them.  

Another way I steer clear of the food table is to not stand anywhere near it!  Doesn't it end up that there's a group of people that hover by the table and others that tend to mingle or go outside on the patio?   "Out of sight; out of mind."  The more it sits in front of me the more I lose my will power.  Talking, playing games, or being outside help take my mind off wanting all the delectable treats.  Besides, I know later I'm just going to be pissed that I succumbed to temptation!  Any other tricks that help you during the party scene?
