Healthy Thanksgiving: 3 Ways to Have a Guilt-Free Turkey Day

In a survey Herbalife conducted, we learned that 45 percent of respondents put off their health and weight-loss goals during the holidays. But that doesn’t mean there still aren’t ways to keep yourself on track. To help you celebrate a guilt-free Thanksgiving, here are three tips: 

  • Cook More Nutritiously: Consider including a crisp salad or tangy slaw to your menu. I prefer to use cabbage because it is rich in antioxidant isothiocyanates, and garlic provides antioxidant sulfur compounds. Instead of a single vegetable, make a mixed vegetable dish for the table for color and variety.
  • Eat With IntentionMindful eating is all about knowing what you put into your body. Limit liquid calories such as alcohol and soft drinks, cut back on taste testing every dish and savor every bite.
  • Curb Portion Sizes: If a smaller plate or portion control plate is available, choose that over a larger plate. While you don’t have to count calories during the party, be mindful of how much you eat and definitely stop eating when you’re full.
