I say why wouldn't we have the foods we love on Thanksgiving? Isn't it much better to do it in moderation and be filled with joy. I'm going to use up my RDI on that day as I do about once a week anyways.

That's what I do. Everything in moderation.

I'm on a doctor-supervised very-low-calorie diet, and my dietician in the program encouraged me to indulge a little on Thanksgiving. "Have a serving of your favorite dishes," she said. "Just don't have a plateful of each one." Last night was my family's Thanksgiving, and and I ate the things I love, but I didn't go overboard (I'm proud to say!). I ate about 300 calories more than on a normal day. It's completely possible. Today I went back to my prescribed diet plan. I think it's very reasonable to eat a moderate Thanksgiving meal while enjoying yourself and not going nuts. Go for it!

I plan to fast like most days and then have a large meal at my mother's. I don't plan to go over my calorie goal, but I am not going to worry too much if it happens.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Have been trying to decide all week if I'm going to track & record Thursday. I know I'll get sick if I eat too much. My taste preferences have changed so much now and with mindful eating (slow really tasting and enjoying foods) I Should be satisfied without stuffing myself (although I am really craving 'stuffing' with giblet gravy).


I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

We have a turkey run in the morning, too. I'm excited! I usually don't overeat, but there are some good cooks around for the holidays and this may be harder than I think.

Well, only eating about 800 calories yesterday paid off, I got to gorge and still remain in a deficit since I was able to place my calories from today on yesterday's total. 800+ calorie deficit on Turkey day. First time I can say that has ever happened and I feel great about it.
