Thanksgiving "Food Coma": 4 Tips to Prevent Over-eating at Your Holiday Meal!

“Food coma” is a term that comes to mind for many of us around Thanksgiving and Christmas. But eating turkey is not what actually makes you sleepy; eating very large quantities of turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes and pie is what makes you sleepy. Here are tips for preventing holiday food coma! 

  • Be sure not to skip meals. Eat breakfast and lunch so you avoid overeating during the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. 
  • Think about what you eat and load up on fruits and vegetables during dinner. 
  • Try not to pre-load on heavy appetizers. 
  • Don't forget that alcohol counts toward calories!

No more food coma!
