3. Be Mindful of How Much You’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 you’re eating, it doesn’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. I’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? There’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.
