Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, football and feasting. The average American will consume a hefty 3,000 calories on Thanksgiving — for dinner alone. Drinks, dessert and appetizers can bring the total calorie count to 4,500, according to the Calorie Control Council, an industry group.

The most delicious Thanksgiving dishes — mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing and pecan pie — are loaded with sugar or fat or both. The Calorie Control Council estimates that 1 cup of mashed potatoes contains 238 calories and 8 grams of fat. A cup of green bean casserole comes in at 143 calories and 8 grams of fat, and a slice of pecan pie adds a whopping 456 calories and 21 grams of fat.
