7 Quick Tips For A Healthy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  So is the time to overindulge and splurge.  It may be enjoyable at the moment, but let’s face it, year after year most of us gain a pound or more during the holidays and unfortunately it stays with us.  Some of us work so hard to get the weight off throughout the year, only to gain it back around the holidays…

But it doesn’t have to be this way. With a little know-how, you can satisfy your longing for your mother’s famous sweet potato pie and still enjoy a guilt-free Thanksgiving feast!

Here are 7 quick tips to a healthy and guilt-free Thanksgiving.

 

1.     Get Active

It is a good idea to work out early in the day and take a walk after dinner.  This will help you burn more of the calories you will be taking in.

2.     Eat Breakfast

Many people think it is better to skip breakfast before a big meal.  It is actually better to eat breakfast.  Starting your day with a small, nutritiously packed breakfast can give you more control over your appetite and prevent you from overindulging.

3.     Watch Your Portions

Don’t treat Thanksgiving like an eating contest.  Manage your portions, skip the seconds (leftovers are much better the next day)!  Eat more variety and keep the portions small, including dessert.

4.     Savor the moment

Eat slow and savor each mouthful.  A lot of the foods we eat on Thanksgiving day, we have only once per year.  So don’t rush through it!

Spread out the food and fun all day long. Instead of trying to eat everything in one meal, start your meal earlier in the day.  Have certain items for lunch and others for dinner and then dessert after a walk together.

Yes, it is better to eat small portions throughout the day than it is to pack it all in one meal.

5.     Go Easy on Alcohol

Don’t fill up on alcohol.  Alcohol calories can add up quickly.  If you do decide to drink, drink moderately with your meal.  Please be responsible!

6.     Don’t Get Stressed Out

Don’t get caught up in all the drama.  This is the time to appreciate what you have with the people you love. Also, with so many extra temptations, strive for weight maintenance instead of weight loss.

7.     Focus on Quality Time with Family and Friends

Thanksgiving is not just about the delicious abundance of food. It’s a time to celebrate and reconnect with family and friends.  Thanksgiving should be family and friends socializing, spending quality time together, not just what is on your plate.

Have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving!
