The Calorie Control Council did some research on Thanksgiving Day dinner and the results are a little bit upsetting.
They found the average American will consume 4,500 calories and 229 grams of fat on Thanksgiving Day. Just to put into perspective how insane that number is, the average male should consume around 2,500 calories in a day and the average woman should eat 2,000 calories a day.
They said it would take a 28-mile run to burn off all those calories.
I say enjoy it. You only live once, might as well fully embrace Thanksgiving for all its caloric glory.
