There is no denying that many folks look forward to an extravagant feast on Thanksgiving. Although this may sound like a recipe for overindulging in high-calorie foods, it is still possible to enjoy all the best foods without going overboard! The following tips will assure that the only thing being “stuffed” on Thanksgiving is the turkey (or Tofurky)!
Eat breakfast: Try not to starve before the Thanksgiving meal – being overly-hungry can lead to compensating by overeating.
Be active: Burn extra calories before the Thanksgiving meal at a local Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk or do something active with the family like a round of touch-football!
Drink lots of water: Drink water before and during a meal to reduce hunger without extra calories.
Stick to small portions: It is still possible to indulge in holiday favorites by enjoying them in small portions. Try sharing dessert or splitting a dinner roll with someone!
