Aren’t you excited about Thanksgiving holiday?! What comes to my mind when I think of Thanksgiving I think of FOOD!!! LOts and lots of yummy food.
Thanksgiving food is some of the most delicious fare that you’ll eat all year long. We all should use a guide to healthy choices on this special day; Thanksgiving only comes around once a year, so why not go ahead and splurge? Because gaining weight during the holiday season is a national pastime. Year after year, most of us pack on at least a pound (some gain more) during the holidays– and keep all extra weight permanently.
Important information we all need to know:
- · Eat less and exercise more’ is the winning formula to prevent weight gain during the holidays,” Diekman says. “Increase your steps or lengthen your fitness routine the weeks ahead and especially the day of the feast.”
- ·You might think it makes sense to save up calories for the big meal; experts say eating a small meal in the morning can give you more control over your appetite. Start your day with a small but satisfying breakfast–such as an egg with a slice of whole-wheat toast, or a bowl of whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk — so you won’t be starving when you arrive at the gathering; that could make you eat much less when the big meal ready.
Have a Great Healthy Thanksgiving,
