If you overeat, you can feel bloated, heavy, lethargic, and generally bummed out. Try foods and drinks that have a cleansing effect. Think crisp, clear, and fresh.
- Sip on ginger tea. Ginger helps digestion and can relieve nausea.
- Try chamomile tea. This may help calm you down so you can relax and sleep better.
- When you wake, take your water warm and with a twist of lemon. Many yoga practitioners do this, and it may help to gently stimulate your digestion.
- Eat more fibre. Foods rich in fibre, such as apples, bran, beans, almonds, and spinach, can keep things moving on out of your system.
- Go fresh and lean. Opt for unprocessed food – fresh veggies and fish, whole grain breads.
- Put down that salt shaker. Too much salt can make you retain water, causing that oh-so-unpleasant bloated feeling.
- Start a mild exercise routine, like taking a stroll in the early evening.
- Speak to your doctor or pharmacist about medications that can help with gas, bloating, indigestion or heartburn. Many of these medications are available without a prescription.
