With its focus on gratitude and family, what’s not to love about Thanksgiving? Well, it might be the fact that this one-day ushers in a diet-busting time of year that can derail all our best intentions. But don’t panic. Here are five tips for getting through the holiday eating minefield.

Five Ways To Avoid Thanksgiving Overeating

  1. Don’t skip meals on the big day: Think about it, if you starve yourself at breakfast and lunch, you’re more likely to feel entitled to overindulge on the wrong things later in the day. So enjoy light, protein-packed meals prior to the big meal.
  2. Exercise: It seems like a no-brainer, but holidays have a way of changing your schedule. Can’t squeeze in your normal gym workout? Opt for a group walk with friends and family members.
  3. Healthy contributions: Insure that there will be at least one side that’s safe to splurge on. Bring a guilt-free dish that still seems special like a luscious fresh fruit salad.
  4. Eat your favorite dish: It’s not good to deny yourself something that you dream about all year – Aunt Betty’s famous pecan pie or your sister’s creamy mashed potatoes. In your deprived state, you may recklessly raid the fridge for leftovers later. Instead, be smart and serve yourself a reasonable portion and enjoy every bite.
  5. Drink water: Unfortunately, food isn’t the only challenge at the Thanksgiving table.  Chances are there will be plenty of caloric wine and alcoholic beverages served. To slow yourself down, consider drinking a big glass of water for every alcoholic beverage consumed. Plus, the water will help you feel fuller, faster.

Happy Thanksgiving!
