Three Important Thanksgiving Health Tips

Posted by UFMC Pueblo in Company News | 0 comments

thanksgiving_plate_turkey_dinner With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we’d like to share three important tips to help you prevent weight gain.

  1. Get Active First things first, get outside and get active. Even if it’s snowing outside, or you have a huge meal to prepare, getting outside for 20 minutes is a great thing to do. Don’t have 20 minutes? Even five minutes can help as long as it’s active. Make activity the first thing you do Thanksgiving morning so you don’t forget or get lazy throughout the day. Whether that’s taking a walk outside or a 20-minute workout routine, just doing something active will help you get your metabolism working and help keep the weight off.
  2. Focus on Protein Focus on the good and get rid of the fatty. Turkey has amazing health benefits and is a great protein. It’s full of tryptophan, protein and other amino acids that can really support your immune system, which can help improve your mood. There are a lot healthy benefits of turkey so when you’re loading up that plate Thanksgiving Day, pack on the turkey over other things such as mac and cheese or other carby foods. Go easy on the gravy and load the veggies on the side for a healthier option. You’ll be happy you did.
  1. Monitor Your Meals Last but not least, if you want to really keep weight off on Thanksgiving Day, monitor your meals. Pumpkin pie is fine as is a little bit of cranberry sauce, in moderation. Stick to half portions and try not to overeat.
Have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
