No turkey on Thanksgiving Day

Introducing the Pierini DIET here

On behalf of Pierini Fitness, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving today and that you enjoy your day however you spend it. If you are like many Americans, it will center on a mega-meal consisting of baked or roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, other fall vegetables and pumpkin pie.

Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of the traditional Thanksgiving Day cuisine. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve eaten my fair share of traditional Thanksgiving Day meals, but mental images of a plate of that food doesn’t make my mouth water even with a belly crying hunger.

In the path that I’ve traveled, there’s been a time or two when my Thanksgiving Day meal consisted of something other than the standard turkey-centered buffet. One time was Thanksgiving Day 2001 when my wife and I exchanged hello greetings with a couple from New York City as we strolled along a street in Fatima, Portugal. A short conversation with this couple followed and ended when they wished us a “Happy Thanksgiving”.

At that moment, my wife and I realized we weren’t mindful of the day it was and that, for us, there would be no turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

Thank you Donna and a Happy Thanksgiving Day to you, your husband and other family members with a stern warning, to your husband and you, to remember to eat your age and not your APPETITE.

Don't be like the millions of others who will not let them being full keep them from eating MORE!

I do planning on eating my age and not my appetite. The traditional Thanksgiving meal is one of my favorite meals. I even chose that for my birthday dinner last time around. I love it!

Happy Thanksgiving, Ed and have a good day regardless of what you have for dinner. Remember to chew your food to a milkshake consistency whatever it is. Long live the Pierini Diet!

Hey, I did really well. My scale said I am down a half a pound today. I ate my largest meal at lunch time and very small meal at supper--no breakfast. Yay for me!
Thanks to Tom, I've been following the IF/no S/fast 5, whatever you wanna call it, and been successful this time!

Have a great weekend!
Donna
