6 Simple Steps to a Healthier Thanksgiving.

Survival Tips for a Healthier Thanksgiving from acefitness.org




  • Eat a balanced breakfast. Skipping breakfast and lunch is a sure recipe for overeating at the Thanksgiving table, and you want to make sure your metabolism wakes up when you do. 
  • Eat small amounts and control portion sizes. Our bodies aren�t meant to handle 2,000-3,000 calories all at once and will store excess calories as fat so eat smaller amounts of your favorites, and remember, there's always leftovers tomorrow.  
  • Bring a dish. If you�re worried about the food choices that will be available, offer to bring something. Here are 6 Classic Thanksgiving Recipes that are much healthier than their traditional recipes, and check out these Pinboards for more recipe options.
  • Plan a family event that involves physical activity. A pick-up game of basketball, football, soccer, or a brisk walk outdoors are all great things to add to a family tradition. For more, here are 40 Ideas for Outdoor Exercise. 
  • Be mindful of your alcohol intake. Mixed drinks tend to have high amounts of concentrated sugar and quickly add empty calories. One glass of wine may be reasonable, but remember alcohol contains about 7 calories per gram, which makes it nearly twice as fattening as carbohydrates or protein. More on Alcohol & Muscle Mass.
