5 ways to not overeat on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you're having a great time with friends and family. I will enjoy every bite of turkey, sausage apple stuffing, roasted veggies and my favorite, PUMPKIN PIE!
Most people eat around 3,000 calories during their Thanksgiving meal.
I don't want you to miss out on some of your favorite foods (mine too!)...

Here are 5 ways to make sure you don't go overboard...
Fill up on a healthy breakfast like high fiber cereal or oatmeal.
Snack on green apples during the day--they're lower in calories and high in fiber
Drink two glasses of water before you sit down to eat
Skip the bread and butter
Use smaller plates so even if you go back for seconds, you're less likely to overeat.
