A Thin Thanksgiving

November 15th, 2012

Tips to Trim the Fat from your Holiday Dinner

Why do you feel so sleepy after Thanksgiving dinner?  No, it’s not tryptophan.  It’s most likely over eating!  Experts agree that although tryptophan is found in turkey–there’s not enough of it to make you sleepy.  And at Thanksgiving dinner, over eating is especially easy to do when there’s so much tempting food around.

Did you know that the average Thanksgiving dinner contains 3000 to 5000 calories per person?  So how do you enjoy Thanksgiving while staying on pace for your fitness goals?

Here are a few tips to help you survive–and enjoy–this year’s feast.

  1. Start the day with Buffalo’s Annual Turkey Trot.  Some of your favorite Hive trainers and team members will be representing Hive Lifespan at this year’s annual (and sold out) Turkey Trot.  If you’re attending the Turkey Trot, we’ll see you there.  If you can’t join us, make sure to get to the club early in the day, so you won’t have to stress out about it later.
  2. Avoid pre-dinner snacks.  Pre-dinner grazing calories add up quickly.  If there’s a veggie platter, situate yourself in front of it.  Crunching on carrots is much better than diving into the higher calorie appetizers.
  3. Be aware of portion size.  Fill your plate with mostly fruits and veggies (candied sweet potatoes don’t count as veggies).  Limit the carbs and keep your protein (i.e. Turkey) to a portion that is the size of your fist.  Try really hard to eat slowly, drink plenty of water, enjoy each bite–and avoid filling your plate up for seconds.
  4. Save leftovers for the next day.  It’s OK to eat leftovers the next day, but not for a midnight snack.  It’s best to stop eating altogether a few hours before you go to bed.
  5.  Watch your cocktail calories.  If you’ll be enjoying a cocktail–go with a lower calorie drink.  A glass of wine is better than an apple martini.  A light beer is better than a holiday ale.  Have common sense and again–watch your portion size.

What it you overindulge?

The good news is, you can work off those calories at Thanksgiving Boot Camp on Saturday, November 24 at 9 a.m.  Our amazing trainers have been working hard on planning a Thanksgiving Day boot camp you’ll be talking about for weeks to come.

Call 716.625.4483 to sign up for this event.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Hive!
