3. Be Mindful of How Much Youโ€™re Eating and Your Portion Sizes

This is probably the most obvious, but also hardest, thing to do when there's a feast in front of you. On Thanksgiving all of the food is extra delicious and tempting. However, if you are mindful of what and how much youโ€™re eating, it doesnโ€™t have to mean a ruined diet or an obscene amount of calories. My personal favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal is the sides. So, I like to have a little bit of turkey, and small portions of all the different sides that we have. Iโ€™m happy because I get to focus on the best part of the meal, and I get to try everything. But figure out what works for you. Not a big fan of the green bean casserole? Thereโ€™s no reason you have to eat it. Have something you really like instead.

I hope that these tips are helpful for you, and that Thanksgiving seems a little less daunting. If all else fails, brush yourself off and know that tomorrow is a new day. First and foremost, be sure to enjoy the time with your loved ones.
