Whether you’ve stuffed yourself with high-calorie foods while watching the Super Bowl or the Grammys, it really doesn’t matter, because the end result is the same.
Although you probably thought, while taking that first bite of a hot chicken wing, that going back to a healthy, well-balanced food regime will be easy you’ll realize soon enough that things are about to get nasty.
You will crave that food you ate during your sinful weekend of choice, and you will crave it bad!
Alas, the situation doesn’t’ have to be so gloomy, and it can be resolved much easier with these few steps. Splurges are a normal part of life, but make sure to always come back onto your chosen path.
A Positive Outlook
Don’t take yourself on a guilt trip! Let’s face it, one weekend, or even better just one afternoon or evening, of overeating won’t take you a thousand steps back. However, hanging on that guilt or thinking that you might as well blow the whole week off since you already binged on junk food will! Remind yourself constantly of all the reasons behind your decision, and the number one should be “to be healthy.” Stay positive and don’t give up so easily.
Breakfast, Breakfast, Breakfast
A well-balanced breakfast packed with fiber ad protein will start your day perfectly, and it will also grant you a positive state of mind (since you’re “back on track”).
Sleep Is Not For The Weak
Quite contrarily, sleep is incredibly important in order to have a strong mental constitution which is essential for a healthy and strong physical constitution. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep every night, in order to regulate the hormones that are involved in hunger, weight distribution, and satiety. Your sleeping schedule should always be one of your top priorities.
The reasons for proper hydration are many. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water per day, and you’ll soon feel much better about the whole binging ordeal.
