Turkey Day

Hey Friends, It is estimated that the average person eats in excess of 3,000 calories at the annual Thanksgiving feast, which is why many experts consider it to be one of the least healthy meals of the year. However, where some people may gain a pound of fat or more from this single meal, you could be one of the few smart ones who eats more turkey on Turkey Day and less of the other high-fat and/or high carb foods like stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and all those tasty pies!
Look, you can still enjoy your favorite seasonal treats in moderation, but the key is to first fill up on turkey (and fruit and veggies) to leave less room for the former.

After all turkey is loaded with lean protein that will help you build muscle, burn fat, and control your typically insatiable holiday appetite.

So Eat up and Happy Thanksgiving!
