b. Tips of Thanksgivings
- With Thanksgiving in about two weeks there a lot of stuff to watch out for. One thing to keep in mind is that while others are not on a workout plan, you are. Watching what one eats is a good place to stay focus on, not saying one shouldn’t eat that special dish, just keep a few points in mind while doing so.
- 1. Don’t let yourself not eat all day for a big buffet later on. – Skipping meals lowers one metabolism, as well as eating a big gigantic meal.
- 2. When eating load up on meat and vegetables – Eat less starches and more high-fats items such as green bean casseroles and candied yams.
- 3. Eat Turkey, Go Skinless – Lose the skin and eat more meat.
- Some Examples:
- Turkey: Roasted, With Skin; Calories: 208; Protein: 54%; Carbs: 0%; Fat: 42%
- Turkey: Dark Meat, No Skin; Calories: 187; Protein: 61%; Carbs 39%; Fat: 35%
- 4. Drink More Water, Less Coffee and/or Alcohol
- In addition to filling you up a little more with your meal, drinking water will ensure that you stay hydrated, and flush out some of that excess sodium that you will be eating.
- 5. Eat Slow - Eating slower, taking smaller bites, and putting your utensils down in between bites will ensure that your body lets you know when it is full, rather than letting you overstuff yourself too early on.
- 7. Weight Maintenance, Rather Than Weight – Weight lost is not a major priority, but keeping weight maintenance is the focus.
- 8. Skip The Crust. Just One Serving - When eating pie, eat the filling part and leave the crust, to save on some empty calories.

Question: Is there a difference between working out 5 days in a week for an hour compared to 3 days in a week for two hours? Which works best between the two?
(Shawn Arent, an exercise scientist at Rutgers University. There was a huge difference between working out two and three days a week. While any amount of exercise is an improvement over none at all, if you're already in decent shape, exercising for just two days a week will not get you much additional benefit.)
Question: Every 10 days I cave-in, which don't seem that bad. Any idea on how frequently should I cave if I want to be more on a bodybuilding level?
Question: I learn that training all muscle groups sequentially is the best way to keep the blood pumping. But for some reason this doesn't seem right, I am wrong?
