Texans Love Their Carbs Here’s What It’ll Cost Us At Thanksgiving
Sure, Texas is known for its beef but when it comes to the Thanksgiving holidays, meat aside, Texans love their carbohydrates!
Here is what the average Texas Thanksgiving meal will cost you in calories!
It's that time of year again when Texas finally starts to cool down and our appetites start to heat up in anticipation of the holidays!
Gobble gobble y'all! Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away!
So far so good.
BUT... OMG is that the smell of fresh rolls coming out of the oven???
Thanksgiving, my fellow Texans, will cost you, on average 3,000 calories. More than 3,500 if you go back for small seconds.
Coincidentally you will need to burn off 3500 calories to lose ONE POUND OF FAT!
That's a whopping four hours of running continuously at a moderate pace to burn off the average amount of calories most Texans consume during their Thanksgiving meal, and that's only if YOU didn't go back for seconds.
FOUR HOURS PEOPLE!!!! Who can run for four hours straight??? NOT ME! Did you know that 3,000 calories is the equivalent of 14 donuts or 6 Big Macs?
One cup of basic stuffing according to The Manual is about 350 calories. Come on! Who only has one cup of stuffing on Thanksgiving???
A slice of pumpkin pie? 316 calories.
What about sweet potato casserole? 235 calories! Because come on, you don't eat it plain!
A 1/4 cup of cranberry sauce from the can? 100 calories.
Traditional green bean casserole, hold the bacon? 191 calories.
A cup of mashers? You don't want to know. Okay fine, a single cup of regular mashed potatoes is 237 calories.
A single cup of mashed potatoes is what we serve the babies at the kids' table!
Get outta here with that!
Eating only one cup of mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving is just ludicrous!
Oh, our beloved corn on the cob... 195 calories.
Sadly, about the least caloric thing on your Thanksgiving plate is the turkey itself.
An average serving of turkey is three ounces at about 171 calories.
Happy Holidays Y'all!!!!
