Now when we sit down in front of all that high cholesterol foods at the Thanksgiving table, we should keep in mind to limit ourselves to healthy choices. The Thanksgiving meal can be a marathon affair, running from noon until late in the evening. The temptation is to wait until you’re really hungry to eat — but that’s not a good idea. Instead, eat small meals throughout the day so that you don’t take on too much food at once. This will help prevent overeating and overindulgence in high-calorie foods like pie, gravy and stuffing. Eat slowly. Thanksgiving dinner is not a race against the clock. Slow down and eat in moderation so you enjoy every bite of your meal without feeling stuffed.Drink plenty of water. Water helps keep your digestive system functioning properly, so drink up before, during and after eating to avoid dehydration.
