Countdown to a Healthier Thanksgiving

Countdown to a Healthier Thanksgiving

It's beginning to look a lot like fall outside! With the first fall holiday behind us, we're staring down the barrel of two more. We want to help you start planning early to make it through the season without gaining any weight. It might seem like a daunting task, but really, just like every other day of the year, if you practice moderation, plan ahead and stay active, this will be the easiest holiday season yet!

We want to give you some early guidance for Thanksgiving, to help you with that whole planning ahead thing. At its heart, Thanksgiving is a spread of wholesome, nutritious food; then we smother, fry and sweeten everything and remove all semblance of balance in the meal. So go ahead, dig in to the best Thanksgiving recipes, advice and tips we have to offer. This is one place it's OK to go back for seconds!
