According to Women’s Health, the average Thanksgiving meal racks in at 4,500 calories. (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/eating-thanksgiving/story?id=21021483) That’s the equivalent of eating 8 Big Mac’s or 26 Taco Bell Tacos! Rather than gorge on just one meal, make your calories count. Focus on eating a wide variety of foods that hit all the food groups to leave you feeling pleasantly satisfied, not stuffed. Choose foods that you enjoy, but do so in moderation. Remember the My Plate rules and try to build your plate with this template in mind.
Have a wonderful healthy and happy Thanksgiving! Catch ya’ on Monday J
