    For those of us stupid enough to cut or diet through the holiday, any Thanksgiving tips? :hs:

    Read a great article in M&F about Thanksgiving. I'll have to see if they have it posted online.

    Thinking of taking this week off to enjoy some food, and then jump back into it again.

    Take Thanksgiving day off your diet, eat until comfortably full but not stuffed, enjoy the day, get back on the wagon Friday :dunno: Don't torture yourself. Have a good day off.

    I'm rescheduling my refeed day that week; I'll make Thanskgiving dinner a free meal and push my refeed a day later. Work *with* the holidays ;) they only come around once a year.

    Well, not worth making it a refeed day, because of the fat/carb :nono: thing. I'll just eat protein up until dinner, then eat a little of everything and move on the next day.

    get as many clean meals as you can in and use your cheat meal as your thanksgiving meal. Don't overstuff yourself though. You only have time with your family like this a few times a year so don't ruin it by being a douche about food.

    Life is short.... Eat what ever the hell you want on thanksgiving.

    If anything, just watch your portions and do not "over-eat" and maybe do some cardio and lift prior to eating.

    here's a tip.... make sure you don't have to make weight a week after Thanksgiving :wtc:


    Turkey Day:
    7:30am: Wake, get some protein and caffeine
    8:00am: Drive to Lake Worth, FL
    8:35-8:40: Warm up
    9:00am: Work up to 821.5lbs for my squat opener.
    11:00am+ Eat turkey every two hours until I pass out


    sweet

    When you fill your plate just eat the protein first so you don't eat as much of the "bad stuff." Limit yourself on the extras, like gravy and don't scoop the marshmellows off the caserole. :o
