Fast After The Feast
Alrighty! Show of hands, who ate too much yesterday? Ohhhh, that’s a LOT of hands! Ok. If you ate too much on Thanksgiving, today is an awesome day to eat much much less. I know it sounds un-fun when there are leftovers calling your name, but this is the key to eating in a balanced way. Most likely you didn’t wake up hungry, right? Good, so take that as a clue that your body is not finished digesting yesterday’s feast yet. The goal is to make sure all food is digested, used, and the rest pooped out. Then you’re ready for another meal! Until then, drink ginger tea in the morning and/or warm lemon water, but don’t eat anything. Around lunch time (only if you are hungry), enjoy your leftovers with reasonable portions. Either skip dinner or if you are really hungry, have something small like a glass of milk or some fruit.
That’s it! Keep it lean today, folks! You’ll feel better. ALSO, it changes our mind so that we don’t just say, “F-it! It’s the holidays now so I’ll just keep on snacking and gain 10lbs.” No no no no. You already know that’s a bad idea, so don’t let it happen. Use your buddhi (wisdom!) to keep you adhering to right choices!
