Most people consume a ridiculous amount of calories then feel pretty crappy afterward on this really special holiday. These Thanksgiving Day Damage Control Tips will give you an easy to follow “Plan of Action” to navigate this wonderful holiday and feel good about your choices.

Thanksgiving Day would be so sad if we couldn’t enjoy our favorite foods- right? This Thanksgiving Day Damage Control Tips will give you a plan with freedom! Grab my Holiday Survival Guide for a complete holiday plan to feel confident and fabulous through this wonderful season.


 Here are 5 easy to follow tips for a healthier Thanksgiving Day:

Tip 1. No sugar for breakfast. Prioritize protein and fiber. This will help you stabilize your blood sugar and help you be in better control of your cravings and appetite,

Tip 2. Prioritize and plan for some movement. It would be ideal if you can you can grab a quick workout first thing in the morning. Here is a QUICK FULL BODY HIIT WORKOUT VIDEO. Or plan a walk with a family member after your big Thanksgiving meal.

Another fun idea is to start a new family tradition, walk or run a local “Turkey Day Trot”. Most cities have some sort of race offerings or do an unofficial walk/jog. It makes for a good time and cute social media pictures.

Tip 3. Strategic Splurges. You get 3 “wildcards” for the day. Think of this wildcard splurge as the size of a playing card. Choose wisely, but you get THREE!! Chew slowly, savor each decadent bite. After you have reached your limit, then it is time to stop. I give you several more tips in the Holiday Survival Guide on how to manage holiday parties as well.

Tip 4. Create margin for self-care. Allow a minimum of 10 minutes in your day to, well, give thanks, pray, and meditate. Any holiday can be stressful, and carving out some self-care will help you be at your best.

Tip 5. Jump back on board ASAP. Allowing for a day of splurging is much more manageable than 4 or 5 days. Not only will this cause your pants to “shrink”, but it also makes you feel lethargic, yucky and achy!  I have to throw away the unhealthy left-overs the next day, or I will make unhealthy eating choices. Getting back to clean eating ASAP is key here. Do the grab my 4-Day Holiday Detox  if you want to de-bloat and reset.

Give these Thanksgiving Day Damage Control Tips a try, you will be so glad you did!

“I am down 9.9lbs and a bunch of inches in 30 days. I didn’t measure before because I didn’t know if I was gonna stick to it (bad move on my part), but I didn’t realize how much wheat I was eating until I cut it out during this slimdown.
