Scott, how do I structure exercise for the entire family during the week of Thanksgiving to avoid gaining 10 pounds of fat like last year? The lazier we are over a holiday, the more junk food we end up eating. Samantha – Plano, Texas.
Samantha, you can enjoy Thanksgiving Feasts without gaining body fat if you use the right strategies. The proven nutrition strategies within the Stop Thanksgiving Body Fat article have been highly effective for our clients going back nearly twenty years. The right exercise approach for the entire week of Thanksgiving burns more calories, optimizes fat burning hormones, boosts metabolism and depletes muscle glycogen (stored carbohydrate) which makes more room for an influx of desserts!
The right combination of short weight training and fat burning interval sessions during the week of Thanksgiving in combination with a low carb intake deplete stored carbohydrate in the muscles which is called glycogen. As a result, the muscles have more room to store new carbohydrate from Thanksgiving favorites such as pumpkin pie and sweet potato casserole.

Dr. Eric Serrano MD and I assembled the strategies based on many years of experience. Consuming organically raised protein and dietary fat choices is extremely important for preventing body fat accumulation. Get your pasture raised Turkey ASAP so it arrives in time for Thanksgiving! Avoid all Trans fats, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, foods fried in corn oil, canola, oil, vegetable oil, soy bean oil and items on ingredient lists that you cannot pronounce. These banned food items screw up fat cell function and can increase the rates of body fat storage independent of caloric values. All of your Thanksgiving favorites can be prepared without the banned ingredients.
Deplete stored carbohydrates within your muscles so there is room for new carbohydrates to store within muscles instead of turning into stored fat.
Burn up the Stored Carbohydrates to Make Room for More
A low carbohydrate approach with medium protein and dietary fat from organic sources naturally burns up muscle glycogen which is stored within muscles. Depleting muscle glycogen forces the body to turn to using more stored fat as fuel which one of the many reasons why the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan is the perfect approaching leading up to Thanksgiving. Glycogen levels can be depleted quickly by using weight training sessions with high volume and short rest. Fat Burning Intervals can also deplete muscle glycogen rapidly.
Depleted muscle glycogen means there is room for new carbohydrate storage. As a result the pumpkin pie, stuffing, mashed potatoes and more can be stored within the muscles instead of turning into stored fat. Now, these holiday food items will not go directly into the muscles, but their carbohydrate content will to a large extent.
