The holiday season kicks off this Thursday with the Thanksgiving holiday where Americans will consume nearly double the calories of a normal day.
Clinton YMCA Executive Director Rennie Cluver admits he enjoys a good Thanksgiving meal. On the WHOW Morning Show Monday, he encouraged to stay disciplined in the routines we've created around being healthy.
One of the last things people prioritize during stressful times is a workout and Cluver encourages planning when you're going to get your workout in.
Cluver recommends planning ahead to make sure you don't overeat and you don't end up lounging and continuing to eat once the meal is wrapped up. He recommends having a protein bar or shake at various points of the day as well as a walk at some point to get out and move.
Cluver also notes keeping hydrated will help you a lot throughout the holidays. While also keeping you energized, being hydrated can help curb hunger and cravings.
