Thanksgiving is officially over. 🦃 It’s time to get back on track! Here are some helpful tips on how to eat healtheir. I have some more helpful diet tips I wanted to share — it’s on how to stay fuller longer. Have you eaten a meal and still felt hungry afterwards? Well, you’ve come to the right place! I’ve been trying to eat healthier and have tried them all. Here are my thoughts on how to stay fuller longer. I hope this helps!

1. Eat a balanced diet

Eat your carbs, fats, and proteins. Eat your vegetables and fruit. Don’t avoid fruit because it contains sugar. Fruit helps to cut down sugar cravings, and it’s very healthy for you. It contains vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber as well. It is a low calorie food that will make you feel stuffed in large quantities. Keep in mind that having a variety of healthy foods in your diet will keep you full longer and won’t make you crave junk food.

2. No junk food

Stop eating junk food. Junk food is nutritionless and will only add extra pounds to your waistline. It will just make you crave more junk food. It’s that addicting. Quit it cold turkey.

3. Eat your fats

Stick to healthy fats from almonds to peanut butter. Fats really do keep you feeling fuller longer because it takes a while to digest in the body. Eating enough fat is good for the brain, skin, hair, and to help absorb vital nutrients that the body needs to function properly.

4. Eat more fiber

Vegetables are low in calories packed with minerals, vitamins, and fiber. Fruit makes a sweet, healthy satisfying snack inbetween meals. Increasing your fiber intake through vegetables and fruits will prevent you from overeating. Fiber is also beneficial for your digestion. It slows it down, so you end up feeling fuller much longer.

5. Eat until you feel full

You read that right. Eat until you feel full and satisfied! I don’t mean go all out and stuff your face. When you feel full, stop eating. Listen to your body. It will tell you when to stop. Trust your gut instinct.

6. Drink water

If you think you’re hungry, try drinking water. Many people confuse thirst for hunger. You could just be dehydrated. I highly recommend drinking a cup of water before your meal. Doing this can trick your mind into thinking that you are full, so you won’t ruin your diet.

10 Tips on How to Survive Thanksgiving Dinner When You’re on a Diet

Thanksgiving Dinner

I had Thanksgiving dinner this weekend, but I have another one to attend on Thanksgiving Day. My first dinner went well, but I did treat myself to some really good food. I just couldn’t help it. My sister-in-law makes the best pies and other desserts. She’s that awesome, and I love her. ♥ So I came up with some tips on how to not ruin your diet at Thanksgiving dinner. I’m trying to behave myself the second time around. If you insist on ruining your diet and going all out, feel free to do so. No judgment. Live your life. This only happens once a year. This is for the people that want to watch their waistline. 🙂

1. Stay on your exercise plan

You can put in a workout before dinner or simply just stick to your exercise routine. The point is to burn calories. Don’t be lazy about it because it’s ‘the holidays’.

2. Eat breakfast before arriving

I know this may sound weird but hear me out. Eating breakfast or lunch before arriving to dinner will prevent you from feeling ravenous. This way, you won’t lose control and eat everything in sight. We all know hunger pangs are real.

3. Don’t overdo the desserts or appetizers 🥧🍰

You can treat yourself to dessert and appetizers but don’t overdo it. I know desserts and appetizers are the best. It can be difficult not to go all out. Have some self-control and portion them out.

4. Add more vegetables onto your plate

I’m sure at every Thanksgiving dinner, there will be veggies on the table. Eat a lot of vegetables. Vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals. They are also full of fiber to make you feel fuller faster. They’re healthy.

5. Be very picky

You don’t have to eat everything. If someone is offering something that you don’t like or want to eat, say thank you and pass it. Sometimes it’s hard to turn down food because you don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. You can always take some, but not eat it or nibble on a little bit of it. If you know what I mean. 😆

6. Pass the cocktails and liquor

Stay away from the cocktails and liquor. They will only add empty calories to your diet.

7. Spend time making conversation and have fun

Thanksgiving dinner isn’t always about the food. It’s about spending time with the people you love. You can enjoy the food too, but it’s about the people. 🙂

8. Dress well

If you come to Thanksgiving dinner wearing your fat pants, you know exactly what you’re going to do. Wear clothes that are snug to prevent yourself from overeating.

9. Portion control

Portion control is very important to maintain your diet. Use common sense. Don’t lie to yourself how much a portion of food is. I know a lot of people are guilty of this.

10. Help clean up

Offer to clean up. This will keep you moving instead of lounging around and snacking.

I hope this helps! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! If you mess up, don’t be too hard on yourself. You can always get back on track the day after.

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🦃🦃
