Thanksgiving Health Challenge. UPDATED 11/22/2012 [View all]

Last edited Thu Nov 22, 2012, 06:59 PM - Edit history (1)

I thought this was interesting -- the dietician at my weight loss group challenged each of us to commit to doing something to improve our Thanksgiving Day traditions in some way that makes it healthier.

The average American gains 3 pounds over the Thanksgiving weekend. Part is just fluid retention, but some is fat.

The challenge could be big or small. Something as simple as eating a half a slice of pumpkin pie, or as "big" as you want it to be.

I committed to taking a 30 mile bike ride on Thanksgiving morning before I have cook the family dinner for our evening get-together.

Anyone care to join me in committing to one healthy change to your T-day traditions?
