BDN Interviews Camire About Recovering From Thanksgiving

Mary Ellen Camire, a professor of food science and human nutrition at the University of Maine and president-elect of the Institute Food Technologists, offered advice for the Bangor Daily News article “I gobbled too much! How to recover after Thanksgiving.” Camire said one calorie-packed meal won’t hurt you nutritionally if you return to healthy habits quickly. She suggests getting exercise through holiday shopping or playing football and watching portion sizes when eating leftovers.
