Thanksgiving is here and it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the food and different dishes you haven’t had in a long time.  This festivities should not make you feel restricted or stop you from enjoying all delicious food, it should rather be seen as opportunity to practice the mindset; everything in moderation.

Here is your Thanksgiving Food Survival Guide to help preventing you from overeating and weight gain.

  • Have a small healthy snack before you go so you aren’t starving when you arrive.
  • Don’t skip any meals, because if you do, you tend to feel hungrier later on and more tempted to stuff yourself.
  • Be one step ahead – plan your Thanksgiving. Decrease the uncertainty and risks of overeating by having a plan for how you are going to enjoy your Thanksgiving.
  • Stay conscious and listen to your hunger signals, only eat when you are hungry.
  • Avoid anything processed on the buffet table, focus on vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins.
