Thanksgiving, the first big holiday here in the US and one that is so food and family-centric. For many it seems impossible to get through and just the idea of it makes us stress eat.
Getting through it or not sets the tone for the whole holiday season. If we fail at this then there’s no way we’ll get out of eating our way through the rest of the year.
Here are three podcasts I hope help set you up for success. They are just my opinions based on helping women and myself actually stick to our diets for maintaining our success without compromising the time with family and friends.
