6:52 am
on thanksgiving day. so what can we do to make it through the big meal without feeling sore bye it after? >> one of the first things, believe it or not, eat slowly t takes about a half hour from the time we eat to the time our brain release as chemical that says we're full. so we want to eat slowly. enjoy people's talk. also, lighten the load with the meal. so, for example, those mashed potatoes -- mashed potatoes that have butter, cream, my butter, instead of that maybe use greek yogurt, really good, mix it in, there healthy, and not as many calories. average person gains a pawn during thanksgiving, yes. that's one of the things, other things we can do instead of the extra butter being sometimes in the baked foods, sweet apple sauce, always good. lot of things we can do to lighten the load. the other thing we opportunity do also is avoid the seconds. you know, jeong plate, that's it. one plane, that's t it is good the next day or later on, avoid the second.
6:53 am
don't forget alcohol has a lot of calories. may want to try a non-alcoholic cider or beverage really good to try. >> now, what if you have anything tummy trouble while eating? >> one of the biggest things of course besides eating slowly don't lie down within two hours after a meal. a lot of times sit down, ugh, watch the football game. then we start having second meal when it comes back up. we want to stand up, or sit for at least two hours, take a walk for half hour. that really helps us. also, loosen the belt a little bit. oh, ya, we're doing really good. but it forces some of the food back. so loosen the belt. take a walk. sit up, stand for awhile. that will help. >> if you say so, doctor, follow doctors orders. now i personally will not be cooking, my family is very appreciative of that. but if you are cooking you say there are some basic precautions you can take as far as making the meal? >> yes. so the biggest thing things that need to be called, keep cold.
6:54 am
things that need to be hot, keep hot. when you are making the meet, don't mix the turkey in the same plate as the other ingredient. other thing when cooking turkey use a thermometer. we want to make sure all of the areas are at least 165 degrees, and we usually check the thigh, the inside, another thing, we don't cook really try not to cook stuffing inside the turkey. the reason being, all of the gravy and all of the juices from the turkey, drain inside the cavity go into the stuffing. a loft times the stuffing doesn't reach the temperature high enough to kill that bacteria. so, cook the stuffing separately, and then put it on a dish and then people enjoy it. then all done, store all of the food in small flat containers this way they can cool thoroughly. we want to eat leftovers within three days, if not, put them in the freezer. >> the best. i want to follow back to one thing. if you are having maybe some stomach troubles, having indigestion, anything you can do to minimize that? >> yes, a loft times like antacids will help us, want to use that, i'm big fan of champ owe meal tee with little ginger.
6:55 am
sometimes we eat too much, we get queezy, sprinkle little bit every ginning nerve chamomile tea, zip it, it helps us a lot. >> doctor rob, very good advice, i don't know if it is advice that we wanted to hear, but good advice. >> still have a great meal. and our great cook. look at everything you made here. >> oh, this is your work, you know that. >> well, i have to admit, sweet potatoes, all the of the sweetened potatoes, all of the sugar in there, these are big, little olive oil, little cinnamin on, really good. if i don't say so myself. and so you may want to try a little bit later. >> cannot wait to eat this. doctor rob, thank you. happy thanksgiving. and we will be right back with three to go.
