Did you know that the heaviest turkey ever raised weighed in at 86 pounds? That's about the size of a large German Shepard.

Does your thanksgiving dinner sound something like this?

8 ounces of white and dark meat turkey.........480 calories
1 cup mashed potatoes with butter...................300 calories
1 cup stuffing.......................................... .............600 calories
3 to 4 ladles of gravy.........................................300 calories
3/4 cup candied sweet potatoes........................300 calories
1/2 cup cranberries....................................... .....200 calories
1 roll with butter............................................ .....180 calories
1 piece of pumpkin pie with whipped cream...150 calories
1 glass of wine or cider......................................150 calories
Total: 3,550 calories

Hoping to walk that off after dinner? Better set aside some time. It takes 12 1/2 hours to walking to burn off a 3,500 calories.....Thanksgiving dinner so good yummy!!
