Eat too much? Damage control tips

Eat too much the last few days?
Holidays, parties, graduations, whatever the occasion, it happens!


Here are my tips to beat over indulging bloat:

1. Reduce carbohydrates
When we overeat carbohydrates, the body holds on to water. Carbohydrates are stored as glycogen, and each gram of glycogen is bound to four grams of water! This means that when your liver and muscles are full of glycogen, you are also full of water. If you want to get rid of some of that extra water weight you gained during the holidays, reduce your carbohydrates 20-30% for a week.

2. Cleanse With Green Veggies
Green vegetables such as broccoli, kale, asparagus and cabbage contain phytonutrients that act like natural diuretics, which can help increase your kidney’s ability to transport toxins into the urine. They also provide powerful antioxidants that can help the liver cells recover faster. Not too mention they are also full of fiber, which can help clear the digestive track too. Add green vegetables to your meals, or try having a green shake. (Shakeology works too!)

3. Stimulate Metabolic Rate
Up your intake of foods that can help stimulate the metabolism! Spicy foods, green tea & cold water! Drink lots of water!

4. Up The Intensity
Obviously, one of the first things you need to do is get back to your regular workout schedule. If you have missed workouts, specifically cardio sessions, you could be feeling a little sluggish. Cardio not only burns calories, it also helps rid the body of excess water with sweat! Remember 3500 calories equals one pound of fat, so try to burn at least 500 calories per workout session!

5. Jump into a challenge group to stay on track
