These are all great ideas of how to cut calories from the main foods. But what about the side dishes. the snacks before the meal? You can have a meals worth of calories in just that.
There is usually salads at dinner too. You can be watchful on what kind you eat. how much dressing you use.
Then the hot buttered dinner rolls.
Thanksgiving Day feast can undo a weeks worth of healthy eating.
I go into the day knowing i will eat more. But portion control what it is. You don't need a lot of something to enjoy it. And there are some foods i can give up . had them too much, don't need them. like the Green bean concoction. I's rather use those calories for oyster dressing. There are some foods that are only served on
this day, thats what I want.
the days leading up and after i watch carefully what I eat.
I usually try to get a bunch of us together for activity, weather permitting , work off calories. Or we play some kind of action game inside. Get everyone up and dance.
Once I lost the weight. I find my need for such large amounts of food is gone.
I want to enjoy the day, but feel good about it afterward.
