Thanksgiving is commonly associated with family, friends, gratitude, and food — lots and lots of food. Although there are certain staple foods that we should stay away from, it can be difficult to resist temptations.
The road to recovering from your Thanksgiving meal starts right when you wake up in the morning. Exercise first thing to boost your metabolism for the day ahead. Instead of drinking alcohol, consume plenty of water. “Holiday foods tend to cause you to feel bloated due to high sugar and salt content, so it is important to drink lot's of water throughout the day prior to dinner and the days post-dinner,” says Michelle Roots, resident fitness expert and trainer for Trainerize.
