Because it is a social holiday where we gather around the table and eat until the conversations come to a halt, and guests begin to leave one by one- we tend to over eat, consuming more foods than necessary on 1,2,3... Servings. Trying to load our plates with the comfort food that lay before our eyes, in fear that leftovers will be scarce this year because, the year before, our favorite dish was devoured in seconds by everyone sitting at the dinner table.
Thanksgiving is the start of the holiday season. Only one of many celebrations with a large feast. Begin with thanksgiving, to get yourself on the right holiday path when it comes to food and exercise during all the festivities.
