This is scary! Elite Daily just posted the average amount of calories consumed on Thanksgiving, and we weren’t ready to see it! The average person takes in 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving!!!!! That’s an average of 3,000 for the main course, plus 1,500 for snacking throughout the day. Keep in mind, the daily recommended amount is 1,940 calories for women and 2,550 calories for men. This may make us think twice before eating so much on Thanksgiving!
