Hey all! It’s Thanksgiving already! AHH! Many tend to binge on this day and eat everything out of house and home. I’m not here to tell you how and what to eat…eat what you want, but be prepared for the consequences!
Here are my tips for eating at big parties and holidays!
1.) Start the day with a big glass of water.
2.) Get an early morning walk or run (or even a stretch!) in if you can!
3.) Do not graze at the table! Put what you want on your plate and WALK AWAY!
4.) Only eat the foods you love. Don’t waste those calories!
5.) Going back for seconds? Go for protein and (non saucy) vegetables…if you can find any!
6.) Keep the breads/rolls to a minimum, and if you have to butter them, use a small amount!
7.) Drink some more water….then do it again.
8.) Just because everyone else is eating it, doesn’t mean you have to! Keep YOUR goals in mind!
9.) Your CALORIES don’t know that it’s THANKSGIVING so all rules STILL APPLY!
10.) Get back to your normal eating and workout routine ASAP. One day won’t be a HUGE deal in the grand scheme of things, but many days off will make a difference! (If you need help with eating during the holidays, then I invite you to join our 21 Day Hunger-Free and Healthy Challenge!)
Finally, I want to leave you with a video that I share with you every Thanksgiving and every year, it touches me differently. I pray that it does the same for you.

Love your tips! I follow most of them and feel great at the end of a big party or holiday. My husband makes fun of me, but then feels so full he can’t move later. Hmm…I’m going to stick to my plan.
Claire, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing that video! What an emotional reminder it is to give thanks in all circumstances! God bless!
