Do not skip breakfast in an attempt to ‘save calories’. It seems like a logical strategy, but will ultimately backfire on you. If you show up at a Thanksgiving meal hungry, you’re almost guaranteed to overeat. It will also throw off your body’s metabolic cycle if you don’t give it something to digest in the morning. It is okay to stick with a lighter breakfast, but don’t skip it all together, and try to include protein, such as eggs.
