You want a meal plan for Thanksgiving? O.K. heres our best advice. Ready?

Enjoy yourself.

Eat whatever you want.

There are 365 days in the year (yeah, yeah we know about Leap Year) and you can watch what you eat for all of them if you'd like. But, to maintain your sanity and your overall enjoyment of food and the holidays, go ahead and treat yourself on the big days.

If you want to eat light the day before Thanksgiving, go for it. If you want to try intermittent fasting and only start your feast after not eating for 16 hours, do that. But ultimately, take the governor off yourself and simply do what you want. Have the extra piece of pie. Enjoy the second helping of stuffing. Go for it.

So, heres your meal plan for Thanksgiving: eat whatever you want. Go nuts.

Save your clean eating for the 350+ days of the year when you dont have one of the greatest meals of all time sitting in front of you.
