Thanksgiving Eating: You Don't Have to Gain 10 Pounds
Over the last few months have you been doing a great job watching your weight and keeping in control?

Perhaps you've been (rightfully) proud of yourself for not caving in to too much temptation and staying active, even as the temperatures begin to drop.

And then the holidays arrive.

Yes, it's that time when family parties are ramping up and the calories abound.

Fortunately, you don't have to miss out on all the parties just because you are watching your weight.

You can have your turkey, stuffing and cake too and not let them add to you waistline.

Special guest, Dr. Felicia Stoler, PhD, and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss how you can enjoy all those sweet treats and not come out on the other end feeling disappointed in yourself.
