How does your diet survive a Thanksgiving meal?
Authorities on the subject say that Thanksgiving dinner is one meal that will not derail your weight loss goals. What will derail them is a minor holiday indulgence as an excuse to binge until New Year’s. Shift your goal from weight loss to weight maintenance during the holidays. Stress is one of the main reasons people overeat during the holidays. There is a certain amount of stress when preparing a Thanksgiving meal, interacting with family members and travel.
If all of your diet tricks fail, just remember to eat in moderation and control your portions. Drink plenty of water, eat slowly, avoid seconds and avoid finger foods as they can be high in calories and fat. Instead of crashing in front of the tv after dinner, take a walk and relieve yourself of some calories and holiday stress.
