3 Thanksgiving Diet Tips To Blast Stomach Fat
Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite holidays of the year and it’s great seeing friends and family while eating a great meal. But Thanksgiving is also notorious for being the biggest eating day of the year and they’ve found the average American is going to eat 4,200 calories. That’s more than double the recommended!
It’s going to be important to have some “strategery” this Thanksgiving so you’re still enjoying yourself but not left with your stomach so full that you collapse on your couch. But with these 3 Thanksgiving diet tips we’re going to get you to keep blasting your stomach fat while not ruining your holiday dinner.
#1. Workout Before You Pig Out.
I know there’s a lot of hustle and bustle on Thanksgiving day but it’s going to be super critical that you get your workout in before you stuff your face. Depleting your glycogen stores with an intense workout earlier in the day will give you some “damage control” before you eat the big meal. Try to get an hour in of intense exercise before you start downing turkey legs and deviled eggs.
Also the day following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, get in a “Burn the Bird” workout so you can get back on the right track and start burning off those calories. This is when some High Intensity Interval Training and Athlete Workouts will come in handy to blast stomach fat.
#2. No Snacking.
Before your big meal stay away from tables full of snacks and dip. It’s going to be really tempting to eat to eat those snacks that are on the table but do your best to resist them. I know it can be a little daunting hanging around your family all day but try to stay clear of the mindless eating so you can save you calories for later on in the day.
#3. Stay Away From White Flour & Take It Easy On The Desserts!
We know there’s going to be rolls and biscuits laying around but do your best to avoid these white flour beasts. Instead try to find something whole wheat and try eating some sweet potatoes instead for your carbohydrates.
Foods based on white flour virtually have no nutrients in them and will essentially just be stored as fat and screw with our blood sugar levels. I really like sweet potatoes because they taste great, they have lots of fiber, nutrients and aren’t loaded with fat.
Also when dessert time comes try to stay away from eating the pie crust. The pie crust alone has on average 133 calories itself and it’s more than 50% fat. If you’re going to eat the pie then don’t eat the crust and if possible don’t even eat any dessert!
I really want to wish all of my American friends and followers a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you stay safe and enjoy this time with family and friends!
