Thanksgiving is a day dedicated to eating. I've heard that the average American eats nearly 4,500 calories in one meal. FYI -- that is more than twice the daily recommended total. WOW! We all try to keep the overeating in check and Dr. Perricone, nutritional advisor to stars like Courteney Cox and Sheryl Crow, tells us some of his suggestions for the holiday in the upcoming issue of Life and Style Weekly .
My favorites are getting sleep the night before the meal (I love sleep) and snacking. The turkey is never done on time, at least at my house, and going to the table starving is a bad idea.
Hope these help you have a stellar meal.
