What did you have to eat for Thanksgiving?
If you were anything like the average American family, your Thanksgiving meal likely looked something like this:
- Turkey (of course). And eaten with the skin
- Mashed potatoes
- Dressing, lots of bread
- Rolls, even more bread
- Sweet potatoes. With or without marshmallows
- Pie. Lots of pie.
- Don’t forget the gravy
And that’s all just the appetizer course. Remember all the cheese, shrimp, crackers, beef stick, and other snacks you also ate during the game?
Yeah, there’s a lot of food eaten at Thanksgiving.
Christmas is even worse, with even more sweets loaded at the table instead of just harvest-related items. And not a green vegetable in sight.
You should be afraid.
According to a SURVEY OF 1,000 PEOPLE, you should expect to gain FOUR POUNDS on Christmas Day.
21% of those surveyed expect to gain between 5-7 pounds, with 5% of those surveyed expecting to gain even more than that.
Gives you a reason to hit the gym in January, right? Like you needed a reason, Mr Tubbo. Don’t go blaming pigging out on Christmas for your lard ass. You’ve had that all along, but just didn’t want to admit it.
