Pickup a small(er) plate and plan head…
Most people haven’t a clue how to eat healthy portions for everyday meals let alone at Thanksgiving. Your stomach is only the size of two fists, so it’s easy to overdo it with all typical Thanksgiving offerings, even when eating small amounts of everything.
Here’s how to fill your plate and not gain weight:
Turkey--no larger than a deck of cards
Two starches (i.e. sweet potatoes, dinner roll)--1/2 cup serving each or the size of a computer mouse
Vegetables--the rest of your plate
- Choose a smaller plate so you don’t fill up on too much.
- If you’re going to be a guest at someone’s house and expect a smorgasbord of unhealthy offerings, try filling up on fresh greens at home beforehand so you don’t overeat.
- Select sides you only get to eat once a year.
- Start eating the veggies first, then the turkey and sides.
- Go for a walk after the meal. Don’t just sit around!
