Registered dietician offers tips for slimming down your holiday.
Many people gain weight at Thanksgiving because they eat too much and don’t get enough exercise. But, a few simple steps can help you keep your weight under control while still enjoying the holiday, an expert says.
A good place to start? “Remind yourself how it feels to overeat,” Kristen Kizer, a registered dietitian at Houston Methodist Hospital, said in a hospital news release. “Remember there will always be leftovers, so you don’t need to overindulge in one sitting.”
It’s also important to eat a satisfying breakfast so that you aren’t starving when you sit down for the Thanksgiving meal, Kizer advised.
