It’s no secret obesity is on a rise, it’s also no secret that we Americans like to eat. Thanksgiving is a time where we all get together with family and friends and socialize over a big feast, and every year at this time our waistlines suffer. This year just say no. When offered that second piece of pumpkin pie, just say no.
It’s okay to have some of your favorite Thanksgiving goodies, just know when to stop. Utilizing proper portion control during your meal can help a ton. No one said you had to have a serving or everything on the dinner table. Want extra mashed potatoes? Take less green bean casserole.
This Thanksgiving our menu is rather long, and I won’t lie I am probably going to have a bit of everything. However, I will not be having a serving size of everything. I will be having roughly 1/4 of a serving the goodies at the table. I will be using my YumYum Plates as my guide.
If you are an over eater, and you know you will be over eating this Thanksgiving, get a smaller plate and only use that. Don’t go back for seconds and thirds, but limit yourself to one plate. Don’t throw all that hard work out the window due to one day!
Remember JUST SAY NO to that second plate.
