Turkey Day Tip #3: Calorie Fest '08

Have you ever wondered just how many calories were in your Thanksgiving meal? Chances are you probably have not wanted to know, on purpose... But just cause you don't want to know doesn't make the number go away. The average thanksgiving meal is around 4,000 calories. YIKES!! That is more than two days worth of calories for some of us! When you think about the fact that you have to burn 3,500 calories to lose a lb of fat that might make you rethink that second and third piece of pie! I found this really cool website that calculates the calories for what you plan on eating for Thanksgiving dinner.

I'm really not trying to scare you out of enjoying your delicious meal, just remember moderation! No need to eat all the food on the table, leftovers are the best part anyways!!
