Registered dietitian Val “The No Diet Dietitian” has some last-minute advice for enjoying your Thanksgiving meal while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

  1. Shifting your mentality to be grateful for your body.
  2. Adjust your schedule to eat Thanksgiving dinner between 2 and 4 P.M., and make sure to have a nutritional breakfast. Val says every 3 to 5 hours we experience hunger and if we wait to eat until later, we overeat.
