Being Triumphant Over Turkey Day
Tomorrow most of us will be sitting down to an opulent dinner filled with fat, carb and sugars. Here are a few suggestions to help you make it through with minimal damage and maximum fun.
Don't Save Up
Don't save up your calories by skipping meals. In all likelihood you will find yourself too hungry and overeat to compensate for missing those meals. Thanksgiving Day should include a substantial, healthy breakfast and a normal lunch. Being well fed throughout the day will help you practice portion control when the turkey and stuffing arrive.
I am not talking about sitting on the couch watching TV all day… I am saying help yourself to the veggie tray, salad, prior to the main meal. Doing so help you control your appetite, provide you with great nutrients, help you feel fuller later, and give you something to eat while others are scarfing down high-cal hors d'oeuvres.
Don’t Be Dense
The most dense foods are the ones most likely to pack the pounds on. If you don't know which dishes to avoid, think density -- these dish could be the ones and think, "I couldn't eat another bite". This includes high-fat casseroles, such as broccoli and cheese, cream-based soups, mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin, stuffing, and dressings. The more dense, the more filling, the more fattening.
Drink Like a Fish
Yes… Drink like a fish. Fish drink water. Stay away from imbibing and pound the water instead. Alcohol is almost pure sugar. Three glasses of white wine serve up 210 calories. Plus, drinking can actually stimulate your appetite, make you more likely to disregard portion control and less likely to say no to the dessert table. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder. Feel free to mix it up by adding 1/4 cup of unsweetened cranberry juice. Put it in a wine glass and nobody will know the difference.
Don't Sleep it.. Off Work it Off
That special enzyme in turkey that puts us all immediately to sleep is a worthy adversary, but fight the urge to snooze. Get moving! Whether it be a game of touch football in the front yard, or a marathon of shopping on Black Friday motion will help compensate for any little indulgences that slipped by over the last couple of days.
Above all remember to enjoy yourself. Don’t plan on losing weight over the holidays; instead plan to simply maintain where you already are. At the end of the day, staying maintaining is far better than putting on a few pounds.
Have an excellent day.
