Thanksgiving Day Tips

What a year it has been! As I work to prepare food in advance of Thanksgiving dinner (and my shift at Healthworks), I’m reminded of how stressful the holidays can be when you’re trying to lose weight (or just maintain your sanity). Here are some tips I’m passing along to my clients today and wanted to pass along to all of you.

thanksgiving tipsThe most important thing today is celebrating what you’re thankful for, including your body and everything it has done for you (and you for it). Celebrate how far you’ve come in your journey so far, whether you started yesterday or years ago. That you’re thinking about ways to be healthy on Thanksgiving shows the progress you’ve made. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

    usually people get away from their routine diet on such events like Xmas, Thanks Giving etc, as we are with our beloved once and who cares what we are eating and that one day distracts us from the routine diet. i got your point but what if we have a cheat day after months of regular diet and exercise plan?

      Great point! That can work for some people, but research (and my experience) has shown that when you’re working to make healthy eating a lifestyle rather than a short-term diet, treating holidays as “cheat” meals can lead to a spiral of weight gain or feelings of guilt. These tips are meant for those who are looking for ways to stay “on the wagon” so to speak. To each their own over the holidays. :)
