    If you know you’ll unavoidably going to gorge yourself for TG dinner, is it advisable to eat a medium-large breakfast, next to nothing (maybe a piece of fruit, or a handful of homemade trail mix) as lunch, and then go crazy at dinner?

    Btw, I found the office workout really creative and simple. Can you also suggest a similar workout of 5-10 mins to survive TG? Also, is it more beneficial prior to TG dinner, or after?

    1. Invited to 5 dinners so far between now and
    December 15th. How do you not offend the hostess if you wish to not partake in the meal, but wish to partake in the festivities?

  3. Rosie says:

    Are mashed potatoes really bad for you? Because they’re really good.

  4. Ben says:

    Thanks Todd and Jennifer…your questions will be in the video!

  5. Jennifer says:

    1) What foods are the best to eat at Thanksgiving?
    2) Is it better to exercise before a big meal so that way the food is better absorbed because insulin is high?
    Thanks Ben!

    Hey Ben,

    Two questions regarding food choices around the holidays:

    1. Lots of us go to restaurants during this time. Any suggestions on how to make the best choices when eating in restaurants without looking too anal-retentive around your in-laws?

    2. Along the same lines, attending dinners at others’ house involves eating meals that others prepare. Any suggestions on how to enjoy a holiday meal when much of the food is laden with sugars (think candied vegetables; a classic in my family), bad fats, etc. without causing a scene?

    Thanks, Ben. Even though we have been through Thanksgiving in Canada, December holidays are right around the corner!
