    T-giving


    Hi All - I'm curious how many people just say 'forget the diet' on T-giving and how many still adhere to it 100%. How many are in the middle?

    Previous years I've just behaved really well up until T-giving, no rules for t-giving meal itself, then right back on. However, I'll be starting week 2 of keto tomorrow, 8 weeks into a 16 week sust/deca cycle. Making great lean gains, etc. and idk if I want to come out of keto. I'm actually having a real internal conflict about the whole thing lately.
    Back.... for real this time

    I know what youre talking bout lol, people will tend ot eat 5000 cals ina sitting on thanks giving and be full for two day haha.

    for the dinner I gotta go to my gfs and than my family's. I still take into note what Im eating. Ill load up on turkey n rice for an average size portion and my "cheat" part will be a couple slices of pumkin pie. Enough to satisfy but not enough to ruin the entires week's fat loss.

    Yeah thats a good compromise. I'd trade the pumpkin pie for some stuffing or mashed potatoes with my turkey. <-- mouth watering

    I think morning of i'm going to do a complete depletion workout, have my cheat meal, then maybe take 300mg dnp before bed and go back to induction Friday, Sat, Sun to get back to keto quickly.

    I say forget the diet completely on thanksgiving. Enjoy the time with your family and eat all the turkey and mashed potatoes you want. Also, why not shock your metabolism and really put that thyroid into overdrive ?! For me, I notice that after I pig out on holidays that the returning day to the gym Im a bit leaner than normal

    It's a lifestyle, not a diet. I either live a "getting lean" lifestyle or "getting large" lifestyle or something in between. It is not that hard or important IMHO.

    Missing the life in the lifestyle would be foolish. Enjoy food and friends on Thanksgiving Day. You could be in a box in the ground the next and your diet and physique will amount to nothing.

    Live!

    Hey my wife just made an atkins t-giving dinner that was pretty damn good. Rotisserie chicken (cause I like it better than turkey) with a spinach cheese casserole on the side. Casserole had 3g carbs per serving. I'll ask her for the recipe and post it.

    i actually really enjoyed the atkins t-giving. The spinach casserole is loaded with cheese and bacon and goes great with the chicken. My wife (very supportive) is going to host t-giving and make chicken, the spinach casserole, and all the other usual deliciousness. I think I can let the guests partake in the rest and stick to the spinach and chicken. I'm just waking up harder, bigger, leaner everyday on this diet. Can't break it, making too much progress. And I'm in the sweeet spot on my cycle.

    A little cheat day is a great thing for both the body and the mind!

    Personally. i load up on the meats, and only get a tablespoon or 2 of the carb-heavy stuff. No person needs 2 cups of mashed potatoes.

    Look at the food before you dig in... decide what you REALLY like (spinach casserole) and what is just filler (plain white mashed potatoes.. eh) and focus on what you like.

    and please.. whatever you do... save room for DESSERT!!!!!!

    So totally true.

    I purposefully scheduled a "getting large" thru the holiday season, cause I figured i may as well take advantage of the food

    I like the rant miser.

    Mid meal update - hit those bacon-loaded cheesy mashed potatos and stuffing but in micro quantities. Loaded up on chicken and spinach casserole. Honey biscuit had to be tried. After a brief period of post-meal relaxation bliss we begin the dessert phase. Each and every single person has their own pumpkin, apple, AND blueberry individual homemade pie complements of my aunt who insists they be served a la mode.

    Must say, having carbs for the first time in 2 weeks I am sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeppppyyy. Glad I did a depletion this morning and lookng forward to getting back into keto but for the time being enjoying the awesomeness. Ok..... I'm going to go take a nap.
