From the Scouting magazine archives: Calorie-cutting tips for the holidays

Turkey Day is only the beginning of a long holiday season of overeating that culminates with midnight champagne toasts and pigs in blankets.

If you believe the Calorie Control Council, you may have consumed around 4,500 calories this Thanksgiving, our national day of gorging. That’s double the daily limit you should eat for good health, or to put it in terms that a Scouter can appreciate, the caloric equivalent of 32 s’mores.

For tips on navigating the next five weeks without going completely overboard, check out our story from the November-December 2013 issue of Scouting magazine.
