How to Stop Overeating and Get Back on Track Over the Holidays

FAST FOR 24 HOURS WITH BONE BROTH TO RESET

Not only does homemade bone broth promote healthy skin, it can also boost digestion. One of my favorite things about broth is that it’s easy to enjoy anytime: in the morning, when you’re sick, coming in from the cold, or when you’ve eaten a little too much and you want a reset to get yourself back on track. 

Check out this great recipe that is great for beginners because it uses a common roasting chicken and any combination of vegetables!

REKINDLE YOUR LOVE OF HEALTHY FOODS AND LIFESTYLE CHOICES

Believe me, I totally get why your grandma’s mac and cheese is too tempting to resist. However, after a day (or a few) of starchy/heavy foods, we sometimes forget just how much we actually like the more healthy choices! Hit your local grocery store or farmer’s market and plan out a deliciously healthy meal that you will enjoy cooking! If you’re dreading working out, call a friend and have them go with you! Even if working out feels like the last thing on your list you want to do, you’ll at least have someone to talk to!

START YOUR MORNING WITH A WORKOUT TO SET THE DAY OFF WITH HEALTHY INTENTIONS

If you’re really feeling the guilt and want to take action to detox from overeating, starting with a workout can set a positive tone for your whole day. Exercising in the morning jump starts your metabolism, and keeps it elevated for hours. Plus, it will feel great knowing you’ve already made an investment in your health first thing. Getting in a good workout can help banish those negative feelings of guilt and give you a boost in confidence that can carry you throughout your day.

Afterwards, try my favorite post workout green tea and chilled avocado soup! The mint in my usual green tea adds an extra kick of energy for me, and I love anything avocado so this soup is awesome served hot or chilled.  I can put this together in about 5 minutes or less so it’s definitely a quick meal for when you want replenish and get a solid dose of antioxidants and vitamins.

DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP ABOUT IT AND RECOMMIT AT THE NEXT MEAL

We’re human and it’s ok to live a little sometimes. Enjoy yourself and have fun during the holidays with family and friends, balance it out with some extra self care, and let it go.  Wallowing in guilt will only delay your healthy lifestyle efforts—and may actually lead to more slip-ups. So, instead of getting down on yourself, just remember that you can make a choice with each day and with each meal! Make a pact with yourself that you’ll be kind to yourself and do better next time.

MAKE SURE YOU’RE UPPING YOUR WATER INTAKE, ESPECIALLY WITH DRINKING HOLIDAY COCKTAILS AND DRINKS

When you’re energy is low from having too much sugar, alcohol or otherwise delicious energy-sucking substances, it’s all too easy to reach for coffee or a soda to make it through the day. The problem is, things like caffeine and sugar can make you even more dehydrated than before. Drinking plenty of water is the key to warding off feelings of hunger and getting rid of post-holiday bloat, not to mention it’s good for your health in general. A trick I use is to drink one full glass of water before each meal and to carry a water bottle around with me. That way, you’ll have reminders during the day to stay hydrated and detox from overeating liquid calories!

GET RID OF TRIGGERS

What really tempts you? Is it candy, a decadent casserole or cake, or is it a sugary cocktail? Whatever it is, it will keep temping you so it’s best to just simply remove it. None of us like to be wasteful and simply throw things away, so try to find a way to get rid of it sustainably like giving leftovers to family or friends or donating food that wasn’t used. It’s a great way to get those trigger foods out of your environment without adding extra guilt to your post holiday plan.
