Thanksgiving is here! A time for everyone to sit back, enjoy spending quality time with family, and indulge a little on some delicious food. Being one of the holidays based on food and drink. How can we enjoy it without sabotaging all of our hard gym efforts? Here are a few tips to get you through Thanksgiving:
- PORTION CONTROL!!! Limit the size of your servings. Or, if you are going to eat more of something, make it turkey.
- One of the few things I tell my clients is to have a little piece of turkey BEFORE you eat pie as well. Yes, I know you just ate a big dinner a few hours earlier. Having that 4-5oz of turkey before the pie will up your protein intake, and also make it so you might not grab for the 2nd, 3rd, or 10th piece of apple crisp.
- Enjoy your food. Do not just devour it. Enjoy each bite, and eat slowly.
Enjoy the fine foods and smells without hurting your health goals! The holidays are here, so cherish the time you have with your loved ones.
