Let's Talk Turkey--Holiday Eating

Are you still nibbling on Halloween candy? If so, give it away, or throw it out! Thanksgiving, and the rest of the holiday season, is fast approaching, and with these holidays comes the temptation for us to overeat.

Get out your calendar now, and see how many holiday meals, parties, and open houses you have scheduled between now and January 2. Being generous, we counted up ten events - Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day, New Year's Eve and Day, plus two company parties and three open houses. Over the next 51- days, we'll eat a total of 153 meals if we eat three-meals-a-day. Wow - do you realize that our 10 special event meals account for fewer than seven percent of the total meals?

The goal between now and the end of the year is to eat healthy, and watch our calories, for the 143 meals that are not special events. That way, when we finally get to our special events, we can feel good about eating, in moderation, everything that's offered.

With a little bit of planning, the clothes we are wearing today will still comfortably fit in early January.
