We believe that Thanksgiving is not a good day for dieting. It is a time when you communicate with your family and friends, bless one another and eat tasty holiday meals.

It is not necessary to eat three portions of turkey and two pieces of pumpkin pie with whipped cream as a little of your favorite meals are enough. You should eat in moderation.

The day after Thanksgiving you may want to start your weight-loss journey with this 1500-calorie post-Thanksgiving diet plan. You are allowed to eat 400 calories for breakfast, 400 calories for lunch and 500 calories for dinner.

This diet plan will help you slim down and feel much lighter. Are you ready to try it? Scroll down to see the one week menu.
