I'll be following the admonition of the Grinch, carving up some serious roast beast. I love to feast during the Thanksgiving holiday, and give thanks for all the delicious bounty. I don't think about keeping anything in balance on this occasion.

Either we are too dumb to know how to balance the Thanksgiving meal, or we don't care or don't want to. People should not have to be told how to not eat too much, but yet we do, and that's not even on Thanksgiving! I'm with Penguin: Eat away!

My family starts the day with a 5 mile run/jog/walk. We also go for a walk sometimes after dinner. Its all a matter of calories in versus calories out. You can pig out if you are willing to do the hard work of burning off the calories.

"Balance" to me means you sometimes eat whatever the heck you want...especially on Thanksgiving.
