"[D]o not starve yourself the day of Thanksgiving and then gorge on the feast! Eat sensibly like it's any other day. I prefer to have a little taste of everything instead of piling on the favorites not to mention how happy it makes my mom when I try all of her dishes. The dangerous ingredient is alcohol, when you have a drink or a few you will be far more inclined to eat seconds or thirds! So drink two glasses of water before you even start to pick or sip!
Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!"
