How to Survive Thanksgiving On A Diet

As we head into the Holiday season, many of our clients have asked us how to get through Thanksgiving (and other holidays) without doing too much damage.  Whether you are on a diet or not, if you are watching what you eat, this time of the year is tough.  Between family gatherings, holiday parties, game watching parties, and all of the other reasons that people gather together this time of year, food and drink often take center stage.  There is nothing wrong with enjoying the season with some delicious food and drink, but we all know that there needs to be a balance.  My last two Thanksgivings are illustrative. Anatomy of a Bad Night Two years ago, I at arrived at my parents house ready for a fun night.  I wasn’t on a diet per se, but I wanted to be under control and not have that “I ate way too much for Thanksgiving” feeling afterwards.  As I sat watching football after dinner, bloated, a little nauseous and feeling like the real Thanksgiving turkey, I thought about all of the mistakes I had made over the course of the evening.  First of all, I came hungry.  I had decided to save all of my calories for dinner.  That set me up to feel deprived from the moment I walked in the door, and I was on a mission to fix that deprivation (even though that wasn’t a conscious thought).  I also came with no plan.  As the first plate of appetizers was passed around, I grabbed a cracker with some of my mom’s special brie and honey mixture.  A couple of...

HCG Chili – InShapeMD Louisville Style!

HCG Chili is one of our favorite recipes – we even eat it when we are not doing HCG.  Easy to make, delicious to eat, and just 200 calories per serving!  This version of the recipe calls for 2 pounds of beef, and I got nine servings out of it.  The best part about this is that I ate one serving and froze the rest, so I have quick and easy meals ready-made.  Here is how you make it:   Ingredients for HCG Chili: 2 pounds of ground beef 4 cans Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes I used these: Muir Glen Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes 1 large diced onion 6 cloves fresh garlic 1 large diced red pepper 2 tablespoons Better Than Bouillon Beef Base: Better Than Bouillon Beef Base 5 cups water 2 1/2 tablespoons chili powder 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (1/2 teaspoon gave it a mild kick, add more or less depending on your taste) Salt and pepper to taste Instructions: Brown the ground beef and drain thoroughly.  I actually spread it on paper towels to get as much of the grease as possible. While the ground beef is draining, put onions in the pan and cook slowly on low heat.  Without oil or butter, you have to be careful with onions that they do not brown too much or stick to the bottom of the pan.  You just want to cook the onions until they turn translucent. Add the garlic (I use a garlic press) and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Add the red pepper, the cans of tomatoes, and the water.  Turn heat to medium and let...
