Turkey

For most households, a roasted turkey is the center of Thanksgiving dinner. A few slices (8 ounces) is just 238 calories, but drowning the meat in gravy adds 30 calories and 300 mg of sodium for each one-fourth cup serving. Being less heavy-handed in pouring can reduce calories. Walking time to burn: Two hours and 40 minutes — longer if you've added gravy. (Photo: GettyImages)
