You may be in a group of people that are perfect in taking care of themselves and watching what they eat. But sometimes you can’t stop and you just keep eating even if you are already full.
Then you stuff yourself with food and overeat. It happens to all of us especially on celebrations like birthdays, weddings and holydays. And then the consequences start to come out. Firs we are struck by guilty conscious, we feel bad that we ate so much food and we regret it. But there can also be more serious consequences like cramps, sickness, dizziness and increased blood pressure. There are some simple rules that can help you recover from these situations.
WHAT TO DRINK
Water is your best friend when you find yourself in this situation. You need to clean your body fast and therefore you need more water than usual, especially before you go to bed. Don’t wait to feel thirsty, drink water before your tongue and throat are dry to prevent dehydration. Herbal teas can be also useful because of their diuretic effect and the ability to speed up digestion.
WHAT NOT TO DRINK
Stay away from coffee and fruit juices. Coffee contains caffeine that can even worsen the situation and you may start feeling tremor. Fruit juices especially citrus have bad influence on upset stomach.
WHAT TO EAT
A lot of people try not to eat anything after holydays, but that can harm you more than it can help. You need a light breakfast like a piece of bread with butter and a cup of unsweetened tea. During the day you need to eat meals like soup, vegetables, salad. Yogurt can also help because it contains pro biotic that improve digestion.
WHAT NOT TO EAT
Avoid greasy, spicy and salted food at least until you feel better.
Controlled diet can help you recover from overeating and physical activity can speed up the process. Dehydrated and tired body is prone to cardio vascular problems. Therefore walking and hiking in nature have very positive effect. That way you will also provide more oxygen that will help digestive organs and faster recovery.
