If you're a foodie like 🍝 me and subscribe to the belief of #FoodOverEverything, pigging out is one of your favorite pastimes. Forget about the family drama 👨‍👨‍👧 going around you as your relatives ask you why you're still single yet again 😑; nothing beats getting to pop open your belt after two mouthwatering rounds of baked mac and cheese 😁 and sweet potato 🍠 pie.

Follow this 10-step guide to dealing with a food 🍯 coma and you'll be able to fit into your jeans 👖 in no time!

1 Stop ✋ Beating Yourself up about Breaking Your Regular Diet

So you may have had one bowl 🍲 of chicken 🐥 and rice 🍚 casserole too many. It isn't the end of the world. How you handle the day 🌞 after is what really counts 👊.

2 Don't Skip ⏩ out on Breakfast 🍳 (even Though You *really* Want to)

That'll only make you feel worse, not to mention hangry. Eat something light, simple and full of fiber.

3 Make Sure Your Snacks Are Packed with Fiber

The key 🔑 to debloating/beating a food 🍡 hangover is eating fiber-rich fruits 🍎. Not only are they easy to digest, they'll help settle your stomach.

4 Drink Water like It's Going out of Style 👌

7 Throw in Some Yoga While You're at It

If you're not in the mood for running 🏃 or hitting those weights, simply doing yoga can make a huge difference in how you feel.

8 If You're Feeling Brave, Try Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal acts as a detox and cleanser, clears your body of toxins. If you can ignore the strong 🤢✊ taste, that is.
