    Posted by Joy Bauer, M.S., R.D., C.D.N.

    If your Thanksgiving plate resembled a family-style buffet doused in lard
    laden gravy, worry not. This 72-hr detox plan is the perfect recipe to
    combat the Thanksgiving weight-gain disaster. Garnish with 8-10 cups of
    water and a daily multivitamin and dive in. Your stuffing will skedaddle and
    you'll be back in your skinny jeans in no time!

    whites, and stuffed with vegetables (try spinach, onions, tomato, mushrooms
