People often go through Thanksgiving Day and end up feeling like crap! Why? Often times they overeat, don’t drink enough water, and overconsume alcohol. On top of it all, people hardly move the whole day. Read below on having a happy, healthier Thanksgiving.
1. Eat Breakfast
Eating breakfast in the morning will give you more control over your appetite when the feast is served. You’ll notice that there are fewer cravings during the day and you may end up skipping that 3rd slice of apple pie.
2. Skip the Seconds
Fill up on your holiday favorites the first go-around, and avoid going back for seconds. Instead, look forward to next-day leftovers!
3. Police your Portions
Choose wisely at the Thanksgiving table, and fill your plate with holiday favorites that only come around once a year.
4. Schedule Dessert After a Walk
Make it a family tradition and take a group walk after the Thanksgiving meal. Feel guilt-free when you cut into your pumpkin pie!
5. Go Easy on the Alcohol
Alcohol calories can add up quickly. Limit your alcohol intake and drink plenty of water.
