Fight the effects of a 3,000 Calorie Thanksgiving

I just read something a bit disturbing; the average American consumes 3,000 calories in one Thanksgiving dinner (American Council on Exercise). Anyone else just have a panic attack? If you want to make sure that meal doesn’t go to your abs, hips, thighs or wherever, here are a few tips and calorie burning suggestions.
·         Go for a pre-Thanksgiving meal workout. Sign up for a Turkey Trot 5K, click here for an at-home-workout (since most gyms are closed on the holiday) or at least get in a morning walk…it’s supposed to be 65 and sunny this Thanksgiving!
·         Eat more turkey, eat less potatoes: protein will help you stay fuller longer, plus turkey is much lower in calories. Check out more healthy Thanksgiving tips by clicking here.
·         Eat slowly: it takes the brain 20 minutes to tell the tummy that It’s full, so eat slowly as to not get overstuffed
·         Go for a post-Thanksgiving meal walk. Enough said.
·         On Friday, get right back to filling up on healthy foods
Happy Thanksgiving!
