The Holiday’s can be one of the toughest times to burn fat. And with Thanksgiving being this week…
I wanted to give you a simple plan to follow that will allow you to eat whatever you want on Thanksgiving without worrying about gaining fat…
I’ve been following this for the past 3 years and it works like a charm.
Ok, here’s your Thanksgiving Week Meal Plan of Attack
1) Eat Lower Carbs Until Thanksgiving…
For the next 3-days, focus on eating lots of protein, healthy fats, and veggies.
The goal here is to deplete your glycogen storage(it stores excess sugar) before Thanksgiving so that you can then be primed and ready for a high carb day. You’ll do that by eating lower carb and…stay fully hydrated all week.
2) Get In A Workout Everyday This Week…
These workouts don’t need to be long. Something as little as 10-15 minutes will do the trick. The key is to focus on making them intense so you hit your target heart rate every session….and that puts you into fat burning zone!
Try to get in one workout everyday, including the morning of Thanksgiving. By the way, I’ll be doing a live workout on Facebook at 8am CST and again at 8:30pm CST on Thanksgiving…so you have 2 opportunities to burn off what you ate! Connect with me and you’ll get notified when I go live.
If you need ideas for workouts, including ones that you can do right at home or when you are traveling… click here to check out my previous live Thursday fat burning workouts on my Facebook Page…
3) Designate Thanksgiving As Your High Carb Day…
After following steps one and two, your body will be primed and ready for an epic high carb day on Thanksgiving.
That means, eat whatever you want. Enjoy seconds (or thirds). Enjoy your favorite desserts. You’ve earned it!
4) AFTER Thanksgiving… Enjoy 2 more low carb days!
This is very important.
After feasting on Thanksgiving, you now want to have 2 more low carb days in a row.
What I love to do is use the turkey and veggies from Thanksgiving for these days (I LOVE Thanksgiving Turkey)!
If you follow these simple tips, I promise that you will feel amazing and even burn some fat all while enjoying your favorite foods.
This is the power of Carb Cycling!
