Close your eyes and breathe…can you smell the aroma of the turkey roasting in the oven? Can you smell the cranberries, sweet potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie that fill the air with delicious sweetness?

From coast to coast Thanksgiving tables will be filled with secret family recipes and new twists on old favorites, but they will also be filled with something else: foods with a high glycemic index which have been linked to accelerated skin aging and acne.

Adding insult to injury, new studies reveal the addictive nature of sugar, making it the latest no-no.

This month, keep in mind that Thanksgiving often acts as the gateway to holiday overeating and overall overindulgence, so be mindful and keep your splurging to Thursday only. Come Friday, eat a few leftovers,  reset and get back on track.
