3,000 calories



That's how many calories are in a typical Thanksgiving meal. Given that people of average size should generally eat between 1,600-2,400 calories per day, this is a pretty hefty meal. One extra slice of pie can send you over the 3,500 calorie mark, and 3,500 is the magic number of calories needed to gain 1 pound! So what's a Thanksgiving-food-loving person to do? Work it off!
