How Much Exercise It Takes to Burn Off Thanksgiving Dinner
It happens each year: The dishes you’ve been craving all season long are finally passed around the table, and before you know it your plate is piled up to your head with turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes — all smothered with a heaping portion of gravy. It’s a masterpiece, yes. But it’s also a single meal that can total anywhere from 2,500 to 4,500 calories (nearly twice the calories recommended daily). While there’s no need to skip your favorite feast in the name of fitness, we recommend taking a peek at this infographic, which puts those cals into perspective. It’s not all bad news, though.

Find out how much you have to work for each Turkey Day dish here.
