The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM

Prep your organs to eat as much food as possible on Thanksgiving
Get stuffed.

Every Thanksgiving, Americans gather to celebrate family, give thanks, and stuff our faces until we all feel sick. Tragically, filling up too fast on a good holiday meal means you won’t manage to grab seconds or thirds of all the best dishes on the table. You need to maximize your intake—here’s how to eat more food on Thanksgiving.

Note: This advice is not conducive to a healthy everyday diet. But then again, neither is Thanksgiving.

Prepare
Getting ready for the big meal is a matter of balance. To consume as much as possible, you’ll need to start on an empty stomach. But if you’re starving, you’ll eat too quickly instead of pacing yourself.

“Fasting is typically not a good idea,” says registered dietician Leslie Bonci. Instead, she recommends that you follow your regular meal schedule, but stop eating four to six hours before the main event.

Carjacking suspect leaves selfie behind in robbery on southeast side; ‘I looked and was like, ‘Oh, my God”

INDIANAPOLIS — Police in Indianapolis are searching for an armed carjacker who they say attacked a woman outside of an assisted living center in broad daylight on the southeast side.

Fortunately, police say the woman was able to give them a clear clue to work with.

“I was just in shock, but I was really scared. Really, really scared,” said Megan Whisler.

She was sitting in her 2005 Ford Five Hundred Monday morning around 10 in the parking lot of an assisted living center while her mom was inside visiting with a relative.

The ONT has been known to take shots at the NFL. However, all of the players aren't douchebags. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Six people have died as a result of Sunday’s attack at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin. A familiar NFL star and Wisconsin native has now offered a gesture to help the families of those victims as they heal.

“J.J. Watt is covering the funeral costs for everyone that lost their life in the Waukesha Christmas Parade,” Wisconsin journalist Cory Jennerjohn wrote on Twitter. “That is an amazing gesture. He has such a huge heart.”
