It is time to start thinking about Thanksgiving and what you are going to prepare and eat for this wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Some things you should do to start thinking about having a healthy holiday are:

Start making a game plan for the day – what will you eat during the day? when will you fit in your exercise?

How much will you eat at your Thanksgiving meal – will you eat a small breakfast and lunch before as to not overindulge?

What are those special foods that you will eat at this meal – are there 1 or 2 dishes that you love and only have once a year such as pumpkin pie or sweet potatoes with marshmallows? Will you enjoy a small serving of these foods? What foods can you pass on?

Are there foods that make better leftovers – what can you pass on today and eat tomorrow because sometimes leftovers just taste better and this can help you from really over eating.

Will you be the host to have control over the foods prepared or are you the guest who can bring a healthy dish or two for you and the rest of the guests?

Remember that this is just one day of the year so if you do overindulge you know you can get right back on track the next day.

What are some tips you have to help you have a Happy Thanksgiving?
