We’ll admit it, making healthy choices over the holiday season can be difficult. It starts with Thanksgiving, when we're expected to eat thousands of calories worth of turkey, gravy and a side dish that is literally called “stuffing.” While all of this may have been appealing to our fat pilgrim ancestors, it's a crisis for betches who would like to retain their BMI if nothing else this year.
Here’s the good news: You don’t actually have to gain thirty pounds next week. In fact, if you follow our simple five-step program, you may even shed a few lbs. Here’s our easy guide to a healthy Thanksgiving holiday that will leave you feeling light as ever:
1. Begin emailing your relatives now and ask them for the nutrition facts of every dish they plan to contribute. Inform them that you are gluten-free, vegan, allergic to nuts and cutting out sugar. Offer a list of “approved items” (kale, chia seeds), and encourage them to stick within those ingredients when preparing their food.
