1. Canned cranberry sauce

There's something about 21 grams of sugar coagulated into the shape of a can that is a major turn off. 

At least spruce it up by adding orange juice and zest, or stick to a homemade recipe. 

2. Green bean casserole

Although you'd think green beans are a healthy dish, once you add heavy cream, fried onions, and cheese, they turn into one of the most caloric items on the Thanksgiving table.

Save your calories for pie.

3. Pecan pie

Speaking of pie, almost everyone prefers pumpkin pie over pecan pie. Even worse, pecan pie has the most calories, with almost 500 per slice.
