Committing to a Healthier Thanksgiving FeastNovember 23, 2023
“The Calorie Control Council” maintains that the average American could consume more than 4,500 calories and 229 grams of fat on Thanksgiving. While the U.S. Department of Agriculture advises daily caloric intake of 1,600 to 2,400 for women and 2,000 to 3,000 for men. Instead of repeating past unhealthy habits, the writer plans to eat wisely this holiday season. He recalls jokes about his previous overeating or unhealthy eating habits.
After a recent visit to his doctor, the writer was told that it was essential for his health to make necessary changes to his diet. As a result, he conducted research on the internet and found studies suggesting that large amounts of food can be harmful. Although he jokes about avoiding all flavors, it is evident that the writer is determined to take steps towards a healthier lifestyle.
The author’s enthusiasm for a healthier diet is apparent, even though a hint of humor is still present. The humor does not detract from the seriousness of his goal to eat more healthily.
