Most people gain 1-3 pounds of fat every year at Thanksgiving. And guess what? Most of those folks make it a permanent weight gain. Thanksgiving used to be a meal with friends and family, but now it's a overstuffing of the body with unhealthy sides, mains, and desserts.
This year, we challenge you to go against this American tradition of Thursday football and 3500-6500 calorie meals. What should you do instead? Have a Fitsgiving!
A Fitsgiving is an active way to celebrate Thanksgiving. You can still have your roasted turkey, potatoes, salad, and pumpkin pie, but we invite you to take an adventure this year and have it to-go. Make your dinner table around a campfire. Yep! You heard us -- turning your Thanksgiving into a backpacking trip. Since you get Thursday (and for some of you Friday) off, you could make a hell-of-a-trip out of four days. You could fly to a hike that you've been dying to do, or hike something near home that you've been meaning to complete.
