How to Recuperate from Holiday Dining
After Months of Tragic Eating
by Ana Veiga
The Holiday can be brutal on my body. My stomach (body) has to do double duty of getting rid of processed foods, white sugar, and white flour (which are also processed, but I feel like they should have their own category).
Here is what I will be doing as a recovery and my tips on recuperating from Holiday Dining:
1. Eat at least three meals a day
It is well known that you should eat 3 meals a day for your metabolism, but according to the New York Post, “2,000 Americans found that the traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner meal structure is now followed by just 27 percent of people today.”
2. Nothing made with white flour
Refined flour is hard for the body to digest. Most processed carbs has tons of sugar hiding into it, which spikes your glucose. Also, sugar turns into fat and bad fats have the tendency to sit in your digestive system.
3. Work Out
Eating right is very good for your body, but getting your “blood pumping” is very important for your overall health. There are so many different ways to workout. The key is finding something that you will stick to.
4. Give your body a break with your bad habit
Most of us have a bad habit. It could be a favorite snack or a a glass of wine every night. Give your body a break by taking a break from your bad habit.
5. Drink lots of water
Another nutritional thing that we all know, but most do not do. The easiest way to track your water intake is to write it down. I have check marks on my calendar for each glass (cup) of water I drink.
