I think this is something to really keep in mind going into Thanksgiving week, the most foodie of all holidays! What are your goals? Where do you want to be in the next month? by summer? in a year? I know that Thanksgiving is about tradition and family, so MAKE IT ABOUT FAMILY! Don’t make it about the bread and pie and the food coma to follow. You can enjoy this holiday without setting back your goals. I know myself pretty well, and if I let myself loose 100% for Thanksgiving Day, the binge will probably bleed into the next couple of weeks. Do what is best for your body, your goals, and your mental state rather than what your family expects of you. It’s ok to turn down the stuffing if this is your first gluten-free holiday (my personal struggle), it’s ok to enjoy fruit as a dessert rather than a huge slice of pumpkin pie, and guess what, it’s also ok to sample EVERYTHING and then refocus on your goals on the 25th. Your body, your life, your choice.
