This workout will jump start your metabolism and keep it running high all day long!

You can eat whatever you want… 

Some of you might be in shock right now! Yes, I said eat and drink whatever you want for Thanksgiving. 

All of you deserve to treat yourself to a nice meal or two during the holidays. So enjoy yourself with your family and friends!

What is the catch? There is no catch! Actually, if you do the workout above and feast upon all your favorite foods and drink it will boost your metabolism! How so, you might ask? Well, when you consume way more calories than your body is used to your metabolism must kick into overdrive to burn the excess calories. Hence, an elevated metabolism all day long! Also, it will be great for you mentally to finally have the food and drink you have been waiting for so you don’t feel deprived of your favorite food and drink.

THE ACTION PLAN

Prep your body for the big day! TODAY you should get in a high intensity workout and make sure you get your sweat on! Drink lots of water and eat plenty of fruit, veggies, nuts, and lean protein.

TURKEY DAY: EAT, DRINK, EAT, AND DRINK!!! Enjoy food and drink but DO NOT stuff yourself!

Friday will be a key day to keep the metabolism revved up. Workout in the morning again and restrict your calorie intake. Only eat left over turkey breast, lots of veggies, and nuts with plenty of water all day long.

Have a great Thanksgiving Day!
