How To Feel Your Best This Thanksgiving – 6 Tips (Health)

In the festive spirit of Thanksgiving, nutrition experts offer six essential tips for a health-conscious yet indulgent holiday feast. The key lies in maintaining a balanced diet: include protein and fiber to feel full and satisfied, and don’t skip meals earlier in the day to avoid overeating later. Mindful eating plays a critical role – take time to savor each bite and listen to your body’s hunger cues. Hydration is equally important, with a focus on moderating alcohol intake to avoid its appetite-boosting effects. Engaging in light physical activities like a post-dinner walk can help manage blood sugar levels.

Lastly, it’s crucial to enjoy your favorite foods without guilt; a single meal won’t derail your health goals. This Thanksgiving, the message is clear: balance indulgence with mindful choices for a satisfying and healthy holiday.

5 Foods A Longevity Expert Eats Each Day (Fortune)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and looking ahead to new beginnings, longevity expert Dr. Mark Hyman offers insightful dietary tips for a healthier, longer life. 

In his recent best-seller, Hyman, 63, credits six specific foods with helping him stay biologically youthful. First, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, and cabbage are crucial for reducing inflammation and cancer risk. Second, the benefits of extra virgin olive oil, a staple in the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet, include combating oxidative stress. Third, nuts such as almonds and walnuts are linked to a lower risk of diabetes and improved healthspan. Fourth, berries, abundant in antioxidants, promote gut health and fight inflammation. Fifth, green tea, rich in catechins, protects the brain and reduces oxidative stress. Finally, while not a food, Hyman highlights the significance of wild sage tea, observed in the longevity-famous Icaria, Greece.

Post-Thanksgiving, these foods might be a great start to a healthier lifestyle.


As we put the finishing touches on our Thanksgiving special, let’s take a moment to savor the blend of hearty advice and delightful insights we’ve gathered. From the top six tips for a guilt-free feast to Dr. Mark Hyman’s secrets for staying young at heart (and plate), we’ve covered all the bases for a healthful holiday.

So, as you tuck into your Thanksgiving meal, remember it’s not just about the turkey and pie; it’s about feeding your soul with good food, great company, and a generous helping of gratitude. Cheers to a Thanksgiving that’s as nourishing as it is delicious!

Happy Thanksgiving, folks!
