Thanksgiving Meal in Calories

By | source: Nov 25th, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving, or to be more politically correct, Happy Turkey Day! What a wonderful day it is today, a day full of food and spending time with friends and family. Here is a little fun fact about Turkey Day, many Americans believe that it all started with the Pilgrims and Native Americans at Plymouth, Massachusetts but evidence shows that it was being celebrated by Spaniards in Florida as early as 1565 making this the 445th anniversary.

Many of us consider Thanksgiving to be a day when it is perfectly acceptable to eat as much as we can for as long as we can and then just sit and let euphoria take over. A day when we have an endless supply of food with endless amounts of people to share it with, and if you are lucky like I have been in the past you actually have a couple of Turkey Day meals ahead of you. However there are some people who choose to not give into all their urges and remain healthy eaters today.

Today’s infographic is for those of you who dare not over eat and want to make sure your calorie count does not go over what it is supposed to be. Although some of you, who are like me and will eat until you can eat no more, may find this infographic to be entertaining and perhaps it will help you out in the gym tomorrow. This infographic provides us with serving sizes, time it will take to work something off and shows that Americans, on average, will eat 1600 calories at their Thanksgiving meal today. [via]
