Plan for leftovers
One stream of thought that is responsible for a lot of post-Thanksgiving regret is the notion that "If I don't eat it now, I won't have another chance." That, of course, is hogwash, because it ignores the possibility of leftovers. What if you were to approach the bountiful Thanksgiving spread with an alternative point of view: "I'm going to assemble two meals for myself from this spread so I'll get to enjoy a satisfying portion of everything I want. I'll eat one of the meals now, and the other one tomorrow for lunch."
One patient of mine, who is recovering from a binge eating disorder, worried about how she would face a table full of her favourite carb-y side dishes and both of her favourite flavours of pie – without regressing into past binge-type behaviours. The solution? Leftovers. She plans to divide her dinner plate into thirds, with one of the thirds allocated to any of the carby foods that used to be her triggers – stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole and cranberry sauce. (The other two thirds are for turkey and veggies, respectively.) Rather than take seconds, whatever she wants to eat beyond that plate will be packed up for tomorrow's lunch – another plate divided into thirds. As far as pie, she plans to have a single slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, and set aside a slice of apple pie for herself for the following day's lunch. A meal so nice she gets to enjoy it twice!
