HOUSTON – Thanksgiving is all about food and gratitude, but before you splurge on that big feast, you might want to keep these tips in mind.

Dr. Sonia Singh, internist with Memorial Hermann Medical Group West University, recommends not “saving” all your calories for a big meal. Instead, “ruin your appetite” with small, healthy snacks ahead of time. Also, give your plate color with fruits and vegetables. And, if you are going to splurge – focus on your favorite dish or dessert, instead of overeating items you don’t particularly care for. Finally, take a 10-15 minute break before going back for a second serving. Your stomach needs time to tell your brain that you’re full, and when you’re eating quickly without coming up for air, you can easily miss that signal and end up overstuffed. And dessert tastes a lot better when you actually have some room for it!

Memorial Hermann Medical Group and Children’s Memorial Hermann Pediatrics recently opened a brand-new West University clinic, located at 3525 West Holcombe Blvd. The clinic offers care for the entire family. To learn more, visit mhmg.memorialhermann.org or call 832-658-6464.
