Tips to Having a Healthy Thanksgiving
With Thanksgiving right around the corner many of us are over-thinking what we can do to help us keep healthy on a day when it is de rigueur to over indulge. So how do successful dieters stay on track? Here are 14 tips from a noted medical nutrition therapist to help you make your Thanksgiving healthy.

You should begin your day with planned exercise or a walk…this can stimulate your metabolism for a high energy, calorie burning day!
