My #1 tip would be to have mint gum and water at all times. The mint gum will prevent you from taking bites 'here and there,' and the water will fill you up. Go for the lean proteins and vegetables first, and just stop eating when you're full! Also, no gravy! And don't forget to enjoy the company of friends and family as well, rather than focusing on food the whole night.
This is so perfect! Thanks Skinny Gurl! I was a bit nervous for tomorrow but now I feel much more prepared. Luckily I have recently become vegetarian, so I can skip out on the calories from the stuffing and turkey Oh and I hate mashed potatoes, and my whole family has known that all my life, so I don't have to worry about those! It's the bread/rolls/croissants that will be hardest for me to avoid, but I have faith! I'm actually kind of excited now that I think about it. It's a learning experience!
Now I am even more thankful that we don´t celebrate thanksgiving (thankful for no thanksgiving... interesting...) neither here or in Germany.
But those tips are also great fr Christmas, and especially this drink-a-lot-of-water-thing is what I always do. Not only before the meal, I basically take a sip of water after every bite. Plus I ALWAYS go on a pre-christmas diet at the end of november (so - now) to lose a bit, so the damage won´t be too big.
And thank God my family finally accepted that I eat only veggies without butter and all (or they simply gave up xD), so I don´t have to feel awkward when I am eating with them
Oh, and - I LOVE the Kate Upton pic... a little treat for the haters, huh?
Luckily, I'm in the part of the world without Thanksgiving.
But I will definitely be reading over this article on Christmas Day!
To all those who do celebrate it, stay strong, don't feel too bad over one day, and happy thanksgiving! <3
