Do you have any strategies for maintaining your trim figure on Thanksgiving?

Jamie Gadette: Everything in moderation, eh?

Doug Kruithof: It’s gotta be that pre- or post-meal walking round-of-golf tradition.

Paula Saltas: What trim figure?

Nick Clark: Binge. Nap. Purge.

Lisa Hines: Being vegetarian helps.

Nathan Levinson: I could eat the whole spread and not gain a pound. Sorry, ladies.

Jennifer Higgins: Back in Chicago, normally I would be going to about two and a half different dinners and be sent home with tons of leftovers, but I have no family out here in Utah. It’s actually been pretty damned easy to avoid the holiday weight gain!

Susan Kruithof: I’m starting the dieting now. I’m on Day 2 of no sugar. Halloween sucks! By Thanksgiving, my stomach will be so small, it won’t be able to hold much. That’s the plan anyway.

Suzie Broshous: My strategy is to try to eat healthy all week long and then to splurge for Thanksgiving.

Justin Healy: My strategy is having a God-given high metabolism. Oh, and the fact that I don’t eat meat helps ’cause I can’t eat 90 percent of the shizz on the table.

Stephen Matney: Marathon eating defeats calories when you dance like Takeru Kobayashi while you do it. Look it up!

Faith Burnham: Dude, the classifieds office is on the third floor … I figure that I have to eat at least two helpings of turkey to make up for the calories I burn just getting to my desk!

Emily Prachthauser: I find veganism to be a great way to stay healthful during the holidays. Where can I find good vegan holiday recipes, you ask? Why, check out my recent post on HappyVegetable.com. Save animals while saving your health. Awww.

Jayne Pederson: I will be having my turkey out of the bottle. Wild Turkey not only eases the pain of familial get togethers, it also requires very little prep time: ice, glass. Gobble Gobble!
