“Popular Science” posted an article on how to eat as much as humanly possible on Thanksgiving. So this is like the OPPOSITE of healthy eating tips. Here are the six things you should do if you really want to gorge yourself . . .

1. Don’t skip breakfast. You’ll eat too fast if you go in starving. So unless you’re doing a super early dinner, breakfast is okay. Just don’t eat for four or five hours beforehand.

2. Go for a brisk walk right before dinner. It’ll stimulate your appetite and help you digest any food that’s still in your stomach.

3. Take a few deep breaths before you start eating. It’s easier to pack a lot of food in when you’re relaxed. So some deep breathing should help.

4. Start out with carbs, like stuffing and mashed potatoes. Turkey has a lot of protein that makes you feel full. Plus, mashed potatoes don’t require much chewing. And too much chewing tricks your brain into thinking you’re fuller than you really are.

5. Don’t eat any vegetables. They have a lot of fiber, which expands in your stomach. And liquid takes up a lot of room, so don’t drink too much either.

6. Take a break and go for another walk. It’ll help you digest, so you’ll have room for more. And if you basically just ate carbs, your stomach will be pretty empty again in 30 to 90 minutes.

Mailing Potatoes

In the Internet age, you really CAN make money doing anything . . . no matter how stupid it sounds. And hoooo boy, does this sound stupid.

There’s a 24-year-old dude in Dallas, Texas named Alex Craig, and he came up with an idea earlier this year. He’d start a business where he’d write messages on POTATOES, and mail them to people.

You just go to PotatoParcel.com, tell him what you want the message to be, and who to send the potato to. Then he writes the message with a Sharpie, puts the potato in a manila envelope, and mails it. That’s it.

He started it back in May, and posted about it on Reddit.com. The idea got some attention because it was so dumb . . . and now he’s making $10,000 a MONTH.

It costs $7.99 for a medium potato and $9.99 for a large potato. Your message can be up to 100 characters on the medium potato, and 140 on the large, and it’s sent anonymously.
