WARNING – the “HOLIDAY RITUAL” IS ABOUT TO BEGIN…
EATING FEST… GETTING “WAISTED”… how to SURVIVE IT!
OR… THANKS-GIVING, is it REALLY?
No it isn’t at all “Thanksgiving,” it is about a reason, a justification, an excuse, to GORGE, STUFF, SWALLOW, CONSUME, EVERYTHING IN SIGHT! I call it the great partaking, or consume-fest! Thanksgiving from an outside view can actually appear as an “eat-a-thon,” a self will run riot event!
Thanksgiving is supposed to be a THANKS-, an actual GIVING OF THANKS! A time of consideration, appreciation, and a special time (day, hours etc.) to look back over the past months or year and be grateful!
Instead people tend to use this as an “event” to justify, to over do, and in many ways, like drinking, the obvious eating, and even more! It is used by many for a time to pick up the phone and see “where do I want to go,” and “what is my best option!”
It is not usually about, “who’s been really important in helping, assisting, caring,” but instead it is mostly about “the meal!” When in all reality, we should be thinking, seeing, realizing, appreciating those whose thoughts, efforts, and works have been caring for us, for our benefits, all the many times, through out the past day’s, weeks, months, or year!
Then there is the “way” people “eat” during this so called holiday, which is supposed to mean “HOLY- day!” Most eat in the most UNHEALTHFUL WAYS!
So it’s a day of Thanks-Giving, yet eating like, “there will never be another chance” to get or eat these foods again? Actually, way over eating, and in the most “unhealthful ways!” And it’s called “Thanks-Giving!”
SO in short, it’s called THANKS-GIVING, so we can “way over eat and way over drink” with some of the most “not so healthy foods” to “show our appreciation” of all that we have? There is something very wrong here, at least for many and they way this supposed holiday is celebrated…don’t ya think!
So I am going to publish some ways to enjoy this holiday eating, WITHOUT GAINING weight, IF…YES, IF the following is adhered to! Note: This plan is way, way more satiating and fulfilling IF actually done, it will surprise anyone with how satisfied they will be!
Happy Holiday with a less damaged waist line and better health to all, enjoy, Bert Seelman.

Holiday meal…..whether, lunch time or mid after noon
REMEMBER……This is not about an eating contest!
Note: the meal suggested is “more” then adequate “if” a person will chew well and consume the meal at a moderately slow pace. If this is done the person will experience a more than satisfied sensation and the rest of the day should be moderated to not consume a lot of “calorie dense “ foods, i.e. like dips, chips, and cheese’s etc.
HOLIDAY EATING… Remember, it’s a holiday, not an eating contest!
(this is how a holiday maybe better handled eating wise)

This is when light snacking on “better choices pay off”

Protein and vegetables that are non starchy. (low glycemic)
Eating often, with better choices will prevent too high and too low blood sugar levels. Avoid stacking too much or too many foods together at eating times. Chew food thoroughly and allow time for the blood sugar to rise and alleviate hunger by satiation, this helps to prevent over eating.
Consume 1 gallon of water this day minimum.
It is possible to eat well and have control…..private programs available!
