The holidays are right around the corner, which means that you're going to have to make a lot of room for those delicious 😋 leftovers. 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. But then the morning 🌄 after hits and you find yourself barely able to move (with a missing shirt button that you still can't seem to locate). But don't worry. 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 👌
Even though you're totally full and don't think you have any room left in your stomach 🤢, drinking water will actually make you feel a lot better. It'll keep you hydrated and help your body digest better. Also, TMI time: It'll stop 🙅 you from hugging the toilet 🚽 or being constipated.
5. Don't Be Afraid 😨 to Sweat 💦 It out
Keep your fatigue at bay by getting your blood pumping. Sweating it out at the gym 💪 or at home will release toxins and make you feel less bloated.
6. Take a Walk 🏃
Now that you're wide awake, taking a walk will do wonders for your food 🍝 coma. Whether you walk for an hour or twenty minutes, it'll speed up digestion and stop 🙅 you from getting heartburn. Sounds like a win-win situation to us 👍!
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.
9. Have Brunch Plans? Be Sure to Eat Clean
Skip ⏩ the fatty foods. Instead, go for a green 🌱 and grainy meal. Sticking to a well balanced diet 👍 the day after foodmaggedon 🍱 will compliment your metabolism.
10. A Warm Cup of Ginger or Mint Tea 🍵 is about to Be Your Best Friend
Not only are both teas ridiculously easy to brew, they're great 👌 for bloating and indigestion. Trust us, they'll give you the kick you need to tackle the day.
