If you ate to your heart's delight on Thanksgiving like I did, I'm hoping you had a plan. I incorporated a pre-Thanksgiving fast coupled with a hard high-intensity-full-body workout, a Thanksgiving sprint workout, and a post-Thanksgiving fast.
I'll also get in a quick, high-intesity workout today during my post-Thanksgiving fast. And this is no small feat as I'm preparing a post-Thanksgiving turkey gumbo...but I'll wait to eat my serving tomorrow.
For me, it's not a huge deal because I'm currently eating in a small surplus to gain a little more muscle. But Thanksgiving will put you in a HUGE caloric surplus if you don't adjust on the front-end or back-end; I've chosen to do both.
If you are not familiar with intermittent fasting, I suggest getting a copy of Eat Stop Eat. There are countless benefits and it's a simple, easy way to manage your calories and still enjoy a normal life.
So enjoy all the goodies and dishes that you look forward to all year, but have a plan. You'll feel better and thank yourself later.
Until next time...
