Gobble Without the Wobble
On Thanksgiving the average American consumes 4,500 calories (more than two entire days’ worth!) and gains an average of 1-2 pounds. This might not seem like a ton of weight, but including the holiday’s through-out the year your weight gain can add up. There are many easy fixes that can be done to enjoy Thanksgiving meals without all the calories included. A balanced plate contains the right portion sizes for a healthy meal.
Healthy Eating Tips
Eat less and exercise more is a healthy mindset going into the Thanksgiving holiday.
Eating slowly allows you to enjoy the meal and only being satisfied with one plate instead of two.
Make dishes that contain less fat, sugar and calories.
Instead of saving the calories for the big meal, experts say that you can control your appetite better by eating a small meal in the morning.
Police Your Portions
Don’t waste your calories on foods that you can have all year long. Fill your plate with small portions of holiday favorites that only come around once a year.
Compare your meal to commonly used items for accurate consumption of portion sizes like the ones in the gallery below.
