Healthy Thanksgiving Tips To Share

Spread the love

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year where we reflect on the things we are thankful for.  It can also be one of the most frustrating times of year for all of us in the fitness industry.  We want our clients to reach their fitness & weight loss goals, but how can they do that when they will most likely consume around 5,000 calories on Thanksgiving Day?  Yep, that is right! It’s estimated that the average American can consume 5,000-plus calories on Thanksgiving Day!

This year you can help your clients maintain their fitness goals by giving them these helpful tips for a healthy Thanksgiving (share this list with your clients!):

  • Schedule the meal earlier in the day. Thanksgiving Dinner between 2 and 5 p.m. will allow some time for the body to digest the heavy meal before you hit the sack.
  • Minimize the carb overload.
  • While guests are arriving, have a vegetable platter available for them to munch on.
  • Serve a delicious soup as the appetizer.
  • Serve a beautiful salad.
  • Serve two or three different types of vegetables at the table.
  • Use skim or semi-skim milk for all your recipes.
  • Serve water with dinner.
  • Desert: Yes, you can have it, but before dessert is served, insist everyone go for a beautiful walk around the neighborhood. My theory is dessert is OK, but you’ve got to earn it!
  • Get your workout in: Head to the gym for a quick workout or take a run, walk or bike ride around the neighborhood.

Hopefully this will help you and your clients have a healthy and happy Thanksgiving!
