Before you sit down to tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner.
dieticians want to remind you to pace yourself.
Research from calorie count dot org shows the average
American will consume more than 4-thousand calories
on thanksgiving day.
So when scooping up your dinner plate.
make sure you hit all of the food groups.
instead of just eating one or two dishes.
Also if you're wondering about portion size.
dietitians say the best guide to use is your hand.
About the palm of your hand the size and thickness
of your meat or your protein, ball your hand up in
a fist, you want to have about this much potato or
starch or stuffing you know that kind of thing, maybe
one or two fists full of vegetables weather that's
a salad or raw veggies.
Dietitians also say there is no such thing as bad
as long as all fods are eaten in moderation.
