delicious calories and fat.. how much exactly, you ask? well.. fox 5's alyssa deitsch is crunching the numbers this morning.. and it might just make you want to do some crunches
7:18 am
i'm trying to work off some of the calories i'll be consuming later today by working out now... because between all that turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pie, your holiday meal can bust your diet. today the average american will consume more than 45-hundred calories and 229-grams of fat, and that doesn't appetizers and drinks. to put that into perspective... you would have to do one hour of yoga to burn off one slice of pumpkin pie. play 20 minutes of flag football to burn of a buttered roll. those mashed potatoes will lead to 30-minutes of hiking. and finally, 4 slices of turkey will have you doing 20-minutes of push-ups!
7:19 am
traditional holiday food.. but hate the traditional holiday weight gain.. there are also ways to make the meal itself healthier. experts say use fat-free chicken broth for basting the turkey and for making gravy. use sugar substitutes - like nutrasweet or agave nector - in place of sugar. you can also use fruit purees instead of oil in baked goods. try to limit the amount of oil you use.. and go for a low-fat butter option. substitute plain yogurt o sour cream in casseroles and mashed potatoes or in creamy dips. make sure there are plenty of vegetable options at the table it may not be all
7:20 am
7:21 am
if you think you need a nap after that holiday meal. diet experts say there are plenty of other foods to blame for those yawns... while turkey does contain tryptophan, which is an amino acid that takes most of the sleepiness blame.. it can also be found in a lot of different protein sources.... like simple carbs in stuffing and potatoes. dejulius says: ""you may feel a little bit more sleepy, but not so much that it's putting the turkey to blame. usually it's the combination of, sure a little bit of tryptophan, with the high amount of foods that we're
7:22 am
especially the excessive amount of carbohydrates." if you're trying to avoid that post- meal "crash"... try to fill half of your plate with veggies... in addition it's also better for your blood sugar to eat more turkey than overloading on carbs. turkey-free turkey what does that mean? like free james brown? or turkey gwet your free turkey! no... like not eating turkey on thanksgiving. oh! sounds boring... but there are lots of people who do it. and this
7:23 am
way to brag about it. we'll show you nothing is more annoying than a cell phone going off at the dinner table. thanksgiving is a time of giving thanks and family bonding. coming up... ways to keep the phone

7:28 am
but thanksgiving should be one meal where people put away their screens and focus around them... for those of you who have to snap a picture of how great your turkey and mashed potatoes look... try doing it before everyone gets settled so there won't be any interuptions during your meal... to encourage everyone to stay off their phones... try putting them all in the middle of
7:29 am
the first one to cave and reach for their phone--gets to wash the dishes... or if your family takes the paper plate route... make that person put away all the leftovers... and we all know there will be plenty of that... it truly is the most wonderful time of the year, especially if you're one of the lucky ones who entered our disney contest.

8:25 am
name, does bill foley realize we are the silver state? dale says... the name 'golden knights' is fine. the name is important to the owner but inconsequential to everyone else. team character and performance is what we should care about. we have callers! golden knights?! what a joke! sounds like a bunch of punks. we should name it sin city knights. nevada is known [as] the silver state; we should have a the las vegas silver knights. golden knights should be for california, the golden state. hello? you all] need to rename the hockey team, that's ridiculous. you can only please some of the people some of the time. you can't please them all , all the time. go vegas golden knights! send us your rants to the rant at fox5vegas.com or call at 702-436-8285
