How Many Calories Are In That Thanksgiving Meal?


Your Thanksgiving feast won’t have nutritional information as you find in restaurants. No worries, we’ll count up the calories for you.  According to the Calorie Control Council, an average American consumes 3,000 calories and 150 grams of fat in a traditional Thanksgiving meal. That’s without seconds! That’s about the same as having 6 McDonald’s Big Macs or 12 servings of Haagen-Dazs ice cream. To burn off Thanksgiving dinner, a 160-pound person would have to run moderately for 4 hours or swim for 5 hours. Whew. That’s why every year it is a repeat of the last holiday seasons, I’ll worry about the extra pounds in January!
