It is the season of Thanksgiving and what a day! All the food your body can stand and football – what more is there to life you say. Let’s reboot and start the day with a light breakfast. Some of us are traveling so heavy food on the road is not advisable for the driver. Others will be hanging out awaiting the magic dinner hour which stretches most of the afternoon, so don’t stuff yourselves early. Leave room for the meal you really want. I stress this approach because self-control goes out the window on Thanksgiving Day. Between the constant snacking, the multiple and repeat layers of desserts and leftovers, watching your plate can be a losing battle. Try to be mindful of drinks as well. Save the calories, enjoy the day and give everyone leftovers to take home. Everyone gets a free meal the next day with loving memories; you have a cleaner refrigerator for restocking those healthier foods, and no guilt about cleaning up those layers of leftover desserts. Start your exercise program immediately so you will be ready for Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving!
