Thanksgiving is a time of showing appreciation, not just for our friends and family but for the bevy of delicious food that will surely cross our paths during the holiday season. Post feast, you might return to your domicile at the apartments for rent in Denver and notice that the scale is reading a few pounds heavier, at which point you’ll start to wonder what you can do to get back on track with your diet and shave those excess pounds off again before Christmas and the New Year roll around. That’s exactly what we’ll be helping you get a handle on today, as we analyze a few practical pieces of advice you can follow to regain your footing following an all-too-scrumptious Thanksgiving feast.

Bouncing Back From The Thanksgiving Binge

The first thing you’ll need to do after eating all that hearty Thanksgiving food is to forgive yourself. It’s all too easy to start beating yourself up for giving in to the temptation of delicious smoked meats and delicate pastries, but it’s counterproductive and won’t help you get back to your diet any faster. Instead, acknowledge that you may have indulged, and clear your mind so that you can do what you need to do next.

And what might those next steps look like, you might wonder? Health Magazine has some pretty straightforward tips on what to do, which include getting back into your regular routine (not purposefully undereating to try and counteract the effects of Thanksgiving). You’ll want to make sure you’re eating protein-rich meals for breakfast, and packing the rest of the day with vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein for sustenance.

To complement this effort, you should drink plenty of water, and forego foods that are hard to digest (like rich Thanksgiving leftovers). Beyond that, though, you’ll likely want to incorporate some exercise into your schedule, so if you don’t already have a fitness plan that involves plenty of moving around, you’ll want to craft one, and include exercises that will keep you engaged and keep you on your feet so you can start burning some of those calories. Combine this with a change in attitude — one focused on making healthy choices — and you’ll be well on your way to getting back on the rails after a Thanksgiving day diet mishap.
