I'm sitting here whilst the bird cooks - and blog browsing. Jen @ Hot Fat 4 Sale has a nifty little strategy for getting through the holiday eating today. This is deliciously SIMPLE!
From Jen's blog:
"Iâm going to put 3 oz. of turkey on my plateâwhat Iâd normally allow
myself for a protein serving at any meal. And then Iâm allowing myself
two bites of any food thatâs on the table that I want to eat. My first
bite is going to be to see if I like it, need it, want it, crave it,
hate it, etc. The second bite is to savor it or say goodbye to it. I
donât need a third bite. Iâll already know what it will taste likes and
the third bit wonât taste any better than the first two.
Iâm also asking my mom to set my place at the table with a small plate (just like I use at home) and give me the smaller dessert fork to use. Plus, Iâm taking my own dessert. When Iâm done eating, Iâm getting up and taking my plate and silverware into the kitchen.
Since weâre eating at 3 p.m., Iâm planning on a substantial morning protein shake, my usual coffee and some beef jerky for the ride up. Itâs all I will need.
This plan will give me the permission to taste whatever I want with the parameters to keep me from overeating. Iâve got my fingers crossed."
