I want to move on to Thxgiving pics and answering the q’s but I need to share this.
According to this article, “The average person gains 7 to 10 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day”.
Unbelievable. Yet it rings to true.
Okay guys, read the article for tips on how to avoid this horrendous holiday aftermath — to some women being worse than the financial aftermath–unless of course you don’t care. In which case you probably have a metabolism that any woman over 20 would absolutely kill for. If it was transferable, you’d be dead.
Or you’re a guy who’s not a metrosexual.
In any case, practice control people!
Here are the highlights in case you’re too lazy to click the link:
1. Avoid cured meats laden with salt and desserts containing large quantities of white flour and sugar. (Well, what’s the fun in that?)
2. Go for more fresh foods, such as vegetables, and less highly processed foods, such as a supermarket pie. (Isn’t mashed potatoes a vegetable?)
3. Take the skin off your turkey, skip the gravy and stuffing, forget the butter on your mashed potatoes, especially when it comes to that other holiday indulgence – alcohol. In other words, control thy self.
4. Experiment with the ingredients and recipes to find healthier alternatives.
5. Say no when you’re full and don’t let others pressure you into eating more.
6. Exercise (nuff said).
7. After a day of indulging, eat lean and healthy.
My only technique this past Thxgiving holiday was to not eat until the big meal. Not for everybody.
