Go Organic for Thanksgiving

First and foremost, I would consume free range turkey, organic ingredients, plenty of natural carbs from potatoes and avoid refined foods. The dietary fats within organically raised foods is ideal as nature intended. Free range turkeys do not have exogenous hormones and consume an ideal diet. The dietary fat composition found in the tasty turkey skin is far superior to commercially raised turkeys.

Yes, you can enjoy desserts without piling on body fat. Performing resistance training a couple hours before the Thanksgiving feast will prime the body to utilize carbohydrates by optimizing metabolism, hormones and creating more room for stored carbohydrates.

Avoid Trans Fats, Preservatives and foods fried in Corn Oil at All Costs

Trans fats found in many Thanksgiving favorites such as the bread in stuffing and pie crusts have a long-lasting negative effect on billions of fat cells. The trans fats were designed to extend shelf life and as a result get stuck in fat cells causing poor function. The enlargement and proliferation of new fat cells causes increased body fat levels and a larger fat storage warehouse that is permanent in nature.

Watch Out for Refined Foods

The refined carbohydrates found in bread for example create the worst and most persistent cravings for bad food choices.  This is at least in part due to the foreign ingredients consumed that the human digestive system does not understand. The lack of understanding encourages the body to release more insulin which is the most potent fat storage hormone.  Consistently high insulin levels create multiple problems and drive increased rates of body fat accumulation. 

You can find bakers who do not use trans fats or other lousy ingredients. Checking food labels is a smart move as the bad ingredients can be easily identified. Look online for organic bakers in your area and order up the pies!

Take A Walk Following All Meals

A 10 to 20 minute walk following meals can help to keep fat storage hormones in check, improve daily energy, add to energy expenditure, reduce cravings and improve mood especially when it is sunny outside. A walk following a Thanksgiving feast is even more helpful than normal circumstances and has been very helpful for preventing cravings after Thanksgiving dinner and for succeeding days.

Get active and stay active

High levels of activity especially when carb intake is elevated will help your body manage fat burning. You do not want left over carbs circulating in your blood stream to turn into body fat, so burn them off!  Weight training 2 hours before Thanksgiving lunch or dinner will ramp up metabolism and prime the hormonal environment for the family feast. Be active all day outside. Who cares if it is cold outside, put on an extra sweat shirt and soak up the sunlight. Families are not going to find wellbeing or happiness sitting on the couch with their phones or watching TV all day. Take a walk outside following dinner which reduces cravings the next day.
