Living at your optimal potential is a choice each of us makes on our own. If your goals are in place and health is a top priority then you can see that the physical day of Thanksgiving is just another day when it comes to the size of your stomach and the amount of food it can hold. Every one of us has overeaten and knows what bloating, fatigue, and sluggishness feels like. If the “big meal” is the only meal you are eating all day, you will without question overeat and be asleep shortly after. All this does is cause you to miss the opportunity to spend time with family, friends, and loved ones.
