It happens to the best of us. We have a fewwww too many treats and wake up the next day feeling (and looking) like someone stuck a straw in us and blew.
First of all, don’t freak out. It happens.
The best thing you can do is jump back into your regular healthy routine and find comfort in the fact that your body will balance itself back out.
Here are some things you can do to help it along:
1. Drink plenty of water. Aim to have about half of your body weight in ounces and throw in some lemon juice for extra de-bloating power.
2. Sweat it out! Do some sweat boosting exercise and/or hop in the sauna.
3. Eat lots of greens and veggies in general. Cruciferous like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage are great options.
4. Eat these other diuretic foods: ginger, garlic, lemon, cucumber and celery.
5. Sip on peppermint tea.
6. Drink a tablespoon or 2 of Apple Cider Vinegar. I like Bragg’s brand.
7. Avoid processed carbs.
8. Avoid dairy, sugar and gluten.
9. Have a few bites of fermented foods like raw sauerkraut, kimchi, or kefir.
10. And my favorite… SLEEP!
TIP: Use this as a learning experience. Can you think of what you ate that possibly caused you to bloat? Once you know how different foods affect you, you can make a conscious choice about whether or not you want to eat them, and how often. This is how you become empowered to take your health into your own hands. And what’s better than that?
