Health Report – avoid overeating this thanksgiving
The countdown to thanksgiving is on, and with so many great food options, it may seem impossible to keep up with healthy eating habits.
But there are some tips to avoid overeating on the big day, including not skipping meals.
It’s crucial to stay hydrated and make sure any snacks or meals you eat before thanksgiving dinner are higher in protein, healthy fats and fiber.
To continue the trend at dinner, you can start by eating turkey for lean protein and healthy sides rich in color like brussels sprouts for fiber.
Focusing on nutrient-dense foods will help make you feel fuller.
People are encouraged to slow down their eating to recognize when they’re actually full and not just eating more because others are.
Above all, it’s important to enjoy the holiday and not feel restricted.
