Digestion and You: The Thanksgiving Edition

I have quizzed you about making healthier and lower calorie choices at your Thanksgiving Day feast. I have even quizzed you on the typical caloric load of the meal. But what happens after the food leaves your mouth?

Digesting your T-day meal is a feat unto itself. Take this quiz to see how eating turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and apple pie affects your belly.
