8:06 am
and we expect the same experience this year. >> from 6:00 p.m. to when? >> it'll be all night long. it's a big event. we see families turn out. we see brothers and sisters kind of reuniting in our stores. so we try to meet their needs. >> other than high volume shopping and what they does to your bottom line, is it a time at thanksgiving to in a sense to test out to be able to see if you can penetrate the online market that amazon does so >> well, the online components really important to us. we've been investing to years to build out our capabilities. celebration of a great store experience and a great digital experience. bring those together during the holidays is critically important. >> how important has cyber monday become with this new initiative? it is part to what it's meant. >> it's a big event. and taking a different approach this year. we've combined both a store experience and a digital

photos to listen to the stories behind these images. >> i like that idea. mastering irresistibly smooth. the lindor truffle ... from the lindt master chocolatiers. hard outer shell... smooth, luscious center. unwrap. unwind. with the lindor truffle. from the lindt master chocolatiers. i don't want to live with the uncertainties of hep c. or wonder whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients... ...who've had no prior treatment. it transformed treatment as the first cure that's...
8:15 am
certain patients... ...can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. harvoni is a simple treatment regimen that's been prescribed to more than a quarter of a million patients. tell your doctor if you've had a liver transplant, other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or any other medical conditions, and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. i am ready to put hep c behind me. are you ready?

8:17 am
,, ? ? as we prepare to chow down this thanksgiving, we are taking a look at the science of
8:18 am
and drinks and the trimmings. a typical holiday meal could top 4,500 calories! that is more than twice the average daily recommended total. the dinner could contain nearly 3 1/2 times the suggested fat and equals to three sticks of butter. our dr. david agus joins us to tell us about this downer. i think this is a thing of beauty. you're saying think about this before you indulge. >> gayle? da is pretty wild. something that makes u.s. hungry and leptin saying we are full. we eat more because of that. but that science is important because what happens is as your stomach gets sxanexpanded assit the stomach and it could push up and you can get acid reflux and indigestion and that is what you feel.
8:19 am
be okay? >> yeah. i'm not here to say how much you should eat, charlie. >> how big is your stomach? >> your stomach is four cups. when you eat more and more your stomach gets expanded and the key is at some point to stop. within two hours of a meal, thanksgiving, 400% increase of heart attacks. you shunt blood elsewhere to the body and that sin restricts blood to the heart. >> you can't pick it up early which is to say fasting. laying off -- >> or saving room. >> yeah. no saving room. >> no. >> don't eat on wednesday so you can eat on thursday. >> a myth that doesn't work. eat breakfast. drink water before you eat and plan activity and running around at thanksgiving. don't do within an hour or two after the meal.
8:20 am
or two to be degraded in your stomach. when you're eating a large meal you're talking five, six hours. when you exercise after that it shunts blood from your stomach and why you get nauseous. >> if you eat half of that, is that okay? what is so wrong with one day indulging? when you think about it. >> listen. the big scheme of things nothing is wrong as long as it's not too much. if you look at the data, our lowest weight in the country is in october. starting in novemb, at thanksgiving, there is a rise in weight until around january 1. then it takes five months on average for the country to get back to where they started! so if you practice a little bit of moderation these five weeks it will pay off significantly in the long run. >> what about if you eat half of that? >> we are looking for half! >> you have this half and you have this half.
8:21 am
much turkey. there is more of it in cheese -- >> david agus, thank you. >> thank you. >> you want to get diverted this holiday weekend? who doesn't? the overnight plane trouble that left passengers stuck on this snowy tarmac. you're watching "cbs this

8:43 am
that is funny. ellen degeneres with help from wolf blitzer. a record high 77% of america thinks the united states is divided on the most important values. some families are sure to find themselves split on different ends of the political spectrum. mo rocca found one of those famlies and talked with them about the election results in a dry run of a thanksgiving dinner. this should be good, mo. >> good 42-year-old victor is from philadelphia and voted for hillary clinton. his mother, 66-year-old fran bauer, lives in ocean county, new jersey, and voted for donald trump. this family ordinarily does not talk about politics but this campaign and election were different and that is add ago whole other thick layer of stress to this thanksgiving. how are holiday meetinals for y family? >> particularly pretty calm because we avoid any

stressful. we are in an unusual situation which my wife and i tend to vote democrat and everybody that comes to my house votes republican. >> reporter: you're outnumbered. will you gloat a little bit? >> i won't do that. a verse in the bible says work at piece and edification and that is me. >> reporter: you're taking a very new testament approach? >> yes. >> reporter: but if you're pushed, you can go old testament on that? >> i can! my husband and i have researched a lot about the clintons and hillary and no way were we going to invite -- vote for her. >> reporter: alex carter, columbia law professor and professional mediator joined us at the thanksgiving table to mediate. >> are you recommendingolitics the conversation? >> mo, this is a very unusual
8:45 am
anybody set a blanket rule if it doesn't work for their family. >> victor, you have two children. >> we have two children. the other side of this is i worry about teaching them a bad lesson which is that, you know, we, as a family, can't get together and have a level-headed conversation about important topics without it going off the rails. >> reporter: so why don't we venture gingerly into a discussion about the election? >> sure. >> reporter: so i'll start. boy. that was kind of a surprise trump took wisconsin! >> when trump took pennsylvania, i knew it was all over. >> my daughter, she is pro-trump. you know? she was very happy and i talked with her and i didn't talk to victor about it because i knew who he veted for and i didn't want to say, yea, trump won! >> well, that was very kind of you. >> fran, what is one thing you would like victor to know? >> well, that trump wasn't my
8:46 am
much before the election because we were so tired of hearing it. and, you know, the way he talks, trump, he comes across sometimes in a very arrogant way! but i knew i couldn't vote for hillary clinton so that is why i voted for trump. >> reporter: what do you want to say right now? >> she doesn't like listening to donald trump but now she has four years of listening to donald trump. >> i know. it's true. >> i would also say that i my vote was a vote against donald trump. >> reporter: they share that then that they hate the other candidate? >> yes. the only thing i would say is i, as a christian, i'm praying that he surrounds himself with good advisers. >> she just brought religion into this now! we started with politics and she brought religion in. >> we are ready for the trifecta. i feel if somebody insults the food, we will have completed the mission. >> reporter: your response? >> well, i think as far as
