12 Secrets for Thanksgiving Day Success

Sir.....Step away from the Turkey leg!!

Well, another great year is quickly winding down.  Hopefully your year has been filled with many successes and continued improvement.

But, alas the year is not yet over!  We cannot let down our guard and watch 10 months of hard work and achievements go through our lips and down into our stomachs as the Holiday season approaches.  As I mentioned in the last newsletter, life is too short not enjoy the foods, family and friends during the holiday season.  Enjoy a little dessert if you want but, stay FOCUSED, stay DISCIPLINED, stay SMART and follow these tips in the article below to remain successful during the Holiday season.

Have a great Turkey Day and try to stay active.

1. Limit the gravy- Use a teaspoon instead of a ladle to serve the gravy.
2. Use smaller plates to help reduce portion size.
3. Bake pumpkin pies in small custard dishes without the crust.
4. Remove the skin from the turkey before serving.
5. Pack more vegetable in your stuffing, use less breading.
6. Don't serve any snacks or appetizers throughout the day.  If so, try a raw vegetable tray.
7. Drink 16 oz of water before you begin eating.
8. Use fresh steamed green beans instead of green bean casserole.  Throw some sliced almonds on top.
9. Bake your turkey, don't fry it. Frying is very popular these days, but adds many calories and fat.
10. Eat a light and healthy breakfast and lunch (depending on what time you eat). Do this so you don't go into your Thanksgiving Day meal starving!
11. Don’t drink your calories.  Watch the sugary and adult beverages.
12. Take a nice, long walk after dinner with your family and friends.
