This Guide Helps You Manage the Thanksgiving Calories

Around this time of year, we're bombarded with tasty recipes, but what is rarely discussed is the abundance of Thanksgiving calories we pack on. This Thanksgiving calories infographic comes from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and gives helpful information on how to choose your portions properly.

It suggests a total calorie intake for men of 700 calories and for women 500 calories, yet the average calorie intake is 1600. To get an idea of what 700 calories look like, the infographic provides calorie counts on specific food items. Users are instructed to select items that add together total the recommended Thanksgiving calories. For instance, one piece of cornbread without butter is 175 calories. So remember that when you're reaching for your second or third piece of the meal. If you're a woman, three pieces of cornbread puts you over the recommended Thanksgiving calories.
