Eating in excess is the hallmark of Thanksgiving. There are plenty of sweet treats, savory sauces and dense foods to indulge in. But eating too much on Thanksgiving will give you a gobble neck too. Rather than trying to lose the weight after the holiday, use these tips to avoid eating too much.
1. Eat Breakfast.
Eating breakfast is key to not overeating, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It provides energy to your brain, which reduces food cravings throughout the day. Furthermore, eating breakfast can help you prepare for the sugar rush after dinner.
2. Have Small, Healthy Snacks Before Dinner.
Small, healthy snacks help to prevent mid-morning or afternoon sugar crashes. Since Thanksgiving dishes tend to be high in fat and sugars, you need to avoid sugary snacks. In other words, consider eating nuts, fruits or vegetables between meals.
3. Eat Low-Calorie Foods First.
Low-calorie foods include fresh greens and vegetables. Avoid the temptation to start with rolls, mashed potatoes and turkey. Instead, begin with a salad. Adding chopped turkey breast to a salad is a great way of combining low-calorie with Thanksgiving favorites.
4. Do Not Hibernate After Dinner.
A long nap tends to follow big meals. While rest and relaxation is nice, hibernating for hours on end lowers metabolism. If a nap is inevitable, set an alarm to get back up within 30 minutes.

Sometimes, you cannot resist the urge to dive into the foods of Thanksgiving. Of course, you might have one piece of pie too many, especially in the days afterward. The gobble neck belongs on the turkey, and you can avoid it if you follow these tips. If it does start to appear, consider CoolSculpting to help get your figure back too.
