Turkey Day Tips

b2ap3_thumbnail_Thanksgiving.jpg

Thanksgiving is only a few days away! For some of us, that means a lot of quality time with family and a lot of “quantity time” with the dinner table. Here are a few easy ways to enjoy your holiday dinner without extending your waistline:

- Carb Spacing: Spread out your carbohydrate consumption throughout the day. For example, avoid eating mashed potatoes, cornbread AND a dinner roll in the same sitting. Instead, have the potatoes with turkey and veggies and save the roll and cornbread for next-day leftovers!

- Party Planning: Arriving hungry to an event increases your chances of overindulging. Plan ahead and eat a small meal before heading out to a holiday or dinner party!

- Pour It Up: Drinking water throughout the day can keep you hydrated and prevent unreliable cravings. Since your body’s signal for thirst is similar to the signal for hunger, staying hydrated can help you distinguish which craving is which!

- Pour It Out: Portion control is so important when consuming alcoholic beverages. One serving of alcohol can have the same number of calories as a couple cookies. Replace a few drinks with water to reduce your calorie and sugar intake!
