Hunt County Agrilife Family and Consumer Science agent Sarah Latham says there are ways to keep Thanksgiving from adding unwanted pounds to your frame.  For one thing, she says limit the feasting to one day, not three or four.  Another tip is to wait 20 minutes after eating before going back for seconds, because it takes that long for your body to realize it's full.  Also, she says be careful not to leave leftovers on the table for very long after the big Thanksgiving meal.
