THANKSGIVING DINNER TIPS
2. Make your plate as colorful as possible and only allow yourself one helping of food (or one plate). Load half your plate with low-calorie, high fiber vegetables, a quarter of the plate with turkey / protein, and the other quarter with a good carbohydrate choice (ie. corn on the cob or a sweet potato).
3. If you are the cook, substitute unhealthy ingredients for healthy ones when possible. Also, for pre-dinner snacking, always serve veggies with low-fat or fat-free dips. Substitute the egg yolks in deviled eggs with hummus for another great fat saving substitution.
4. Take a walk after eating.
5. Allow yourself to have a small taste of dessert. Remember, the more “off-limits” a food becomes, the more likely you will have the tendency to over-indulge in it. Everything in moderation is OK.
