Thanksgiving Tips

Here are 10 ways to make your Thanksgiving Day a little healthier. Do at least 3 of these and I’ll be very thankful!

  1. Eat a healthy breakfast on Thanksgiving morning (it prevents overeating later.)
  2. Get some exercise.
  3. Be the slowest eater at the table. Set your fork down between every bite of food.
  4. Drink lots of water the whole day through and have small snacks when you get hungry.
  5. Eat your turkey and healthiest veggies first, before you eat the stuffing, potatoes, etc.
  6. Go for a walk after dinner (it helps prevent your blood sugar from rising too high too fast.)
  7. Remember the 3-bite rule: 90% of the flavor is in the first 3 bites. That means you don’t need a huge slice of pie!
  8. Give away the most unhealthy leftovers.
  9. Have healthy meals and a good workout planned for the day after Thanksgiving (to get right back on track).
  10. Take a moment to be thankful and to enjoy your family and friends (I’m not being sentimental–research shows that this can improve your health!)

Have a very happy Thanksgiving!
