CAROLYN O’NEIL - REGISTERED DIETITIAN AND AUTHOR OF THE “SLIM DOWN SOUTH COOKBOOK - HOW YOU CAN AVOID THE THANKSGIVING ‘FOOD HANGOVER’
Nutrition therapists at the University of Maryland Medical System say the average Thanksgiving meal consists of 3,000 calories.
Many of those calories can cause a “food hangover,” because fat takes a lot of energy to digest so blood flow is diverted to the digestive system instead of the brain, leaving you feeling lethargic and uncommunicative with family and friends.
There’s a better way, according to Carolyn O’Neil, a registered dietitian and author of the “Slim Down South Cookbook,” who says the key to lightening the calorie load are recipe swaps, cooking techniques and portion control.
Carolyn shares her anti-“Thanksgiving Hangover’ tips with your viewers in live or live-to-tape interviews: When you book a window, we’ll provide you with background info, bio and suggested questions.
