3 Thanksgiving Foods That Won’t Add to Your Waistline

Body Contouring Salt Lake City, UT Whether you just got a body contouring procedure from Dr. Paul A. Watterson or you are trying to watch your figure, you may be dreading the upcoming holiday. Because Thanksgiving is all about eating, you may be wondering if there’s going to be anything that you will be able to eat. To help you feel a little more confident about going into your Thanksgiving feast without feeling like you’re going to gain a bunch of weight, Dr. Watterson has created a list of foods that you can eat without feeling guilty.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are filled with a bunch of vitamins. Rather than eating your traditional sweet potato casserole though that’s covered in marshmallows, brown sugar, or butter, consider roasting some sweet potatoes and drizzling them with olive oil. Roasted sweet potatoes aren’t only flavorful but they won’t make you gain any unnecessary weight either.


Luckily, the main course on Thanksgiving is turkey which is high in protein and low in fat. Make sure that you load up your plate with a bunch of white meat turkey. White meat is lower in fat which means that it better for your waist and your heart. Just make sure that you don’t cover it with gravy or cranberry sauce because it will just add extra calories to your meal.

Pumpkin Pie

In a perfect world, you wouldn’t eat any dessert, but since it’s Thanksgiving, you may as well entitle yourself to a tiny slice of pie, right? Rather than reaching for cake or fruit pie, consider eating pumpkin pie instead. Pumpkin is not only full of vitamins but pumpkin pie itself is typically lower in fat than other desserts.

Even if you are trying to avoid weight gain, you still deserve to enjoy your Thanksgiving. To learn more about how you can keep off weight after liposuction, contact our Draper office and call us at 801.571.2020.
