5 Tips for a Skinny Thanksgiving

Here are quick tips to conquer the 2500-4500 calorie Thanksgiving meal

When you're trying to lose weight, the thought of Thanksgiving dinner and start of the holiday season can be downright scary.  Having a strategy to conquer Thursday's 2500-4500 calorie meal is the best way to ease fears and succeed at your weight loss goals.  Here are five tips to help!

  1. Get Active. Exercise before Thanksgiving dinner to create a calorie deficit. Use the 4-day weekend to get even more extra exercise in for the week.
  2. Eat Breakfast.  Eating a small healthy meal in the morning can help you better control your appetite later.
  3. Lighten Up & Watch Portions. Use sugar substitutes like Stevia in place of regular sugar, fat-free yogurt in place of sour cream, and zero calorie, low carb Skinny Noodles in place of regular pasta where possible. Skip seconds and choose healthier options at the buffet.
  4. Eat Slowly. Put down the fork between bites and really savor each mouthful to avoid overeating.
  5. Go Easy on Alcohol. Alcohol is loaded with extra calories. Choose a non-alcoholic drink or have a glass of water between alcoholic drinks.
