Not Thankful 4 Bloating

So, here you are. After 3 pies and plenty of carbs. And seconds. And leftovers. Full of food and regret. You have come to the right place.

Now, Thanksgiving pleasure eating is nothing to be ashamed of, but how you proceed from this weekend of eating defines what kind of person you are, really. 

These 3-4 days will not harm you if you pick yourself up and display some self-control. 

My detox had begun today - because Mondays are the worst day to diet. 

1. Detox tea is heaven after days like this. My mom had stashed up on those back in the summer, so I had to use 1 tea pack this morning. 

2. Coffee is also great to get the food "going" if you know what I mean. 

3. Probiotics and/or kombucha are also really helpful to kick your tummy into gear, but don't expect them to work right away. 

4. I stick to foods that are uncooked and easy to process. Lots of veggies and salads.  

5. No soup. I hate soup because no matter how healthy it always makes me so bloated from all the sodium. 

6. Juices are a great meal alternative while detoxing. Again, as the pre-thanksgiving detox guide suggested, juices and smoothies are so good for your tummy and easy to process. 

Overall, the key here is to make the work for your tummy as quick and simple as possible. After stuffing yourself it's crucial to let your stomach get back into it's normal routine. 

Also, remember that skipping meals will actual hinder you from processing your food because your stomach will think it's being deprived of food and will in return hold on to that extra food and turn it into fat. 

There are 25 days till Christmas, you can do it!
