It seems to be an American tradition that on Thanksgiving, we all join our family for good times and food. Lots of food. Generally most of us load our plates too full and eat way too much. Unfortunately, one day of gluttony can throw off your diet and your training. Want a quick tip to help keep your diet and training on track? Exercise before you eat. Research has shown that exercising prior to eating can increase your metabolism, decrease your appetite, and lesson the amount of fat in your blood. Now I’m not suggesting that you disappear on Thanksgiving morning for a 3+ hour workout. Just come up with something that is short and to the point. Keep the intensity level high and get it done fast. That should be enough to gain the benefits without having to miss out on family time.

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
