Believe it or not, eating small portions of exactly what you want on Thanksgiving may actually be better for you in the long run than stuffing yourself of “healthy” alternatives while desiring what you are denying yourself. If you choose not to have what you really would like, you may eat and eat and eat, trying to satisfy yourself. Instead, take tiny portions of exactly what you want and savor every bite. Don’t go back for seconds either. Put your fork down in between bites. Pick your head up from the trough, I mean, plate. Enjoy the company of those you are eating with. Take a sip of water in between bites. Really taste the food. If you cannot taste the food anymore, that means you are full- STOP EATING. Try this. If you are eating chocolate ice cream at the end of the meal and you are full, you will only taste the cold, not the chocolate.
