I got most of this information from Isabel’s email and it works no matter when or why, throughout the year you have sugar overload!When you’ve eaten too much sugar- candies, pies, cakes, cookies- most dessert goodies, you probably feel fatigued, your heart might be racing, your mind spinning, your stomach hurting, and you can feel a headache coming on. So how do you get rid of this “sugar hangover”?
1. Drink water – Keeping your body hydrated will help flush your body of toxins and aid in recovery, ultimately making you feel better.
2. Take a walk – Get your blood flowing with a little exercise and some fresh air. If you usually work out, don’t skip it…exercising will actually make you feel more energized, rather than more tired.
3. Eat breakfast – Don’t skip breakfast in an attempt to make up for yesterday’s indulgence. Make sure your breakfast includes some healthy protein (as it always should). With all that sugar you ate, you need to make sure your body has the protein it needs to remain balanced.
4. Avoid starchy foods – When dealing with a “sugar hangover,” the last thing you want to eat is more foods that are going to quickly turn to sugar in your body. There is no need to avoid carbs altogether, but make sure you’re making smart choices- leave off the breads and enjoy vegetables like a baked potato, corn-on-the-cob, or other favorite starchy vegetable.
5. Eat some fruits and vegetables – Or, for a quick fix that still packs a good-for-you punch, make yourself a greens drink with Athletic Greens. As I’ve told you before, Athletic Greens is my nutritional insurance. Made from 76 specially selected ingredients, Athletic Greens is designed to detoxify and protect your body. And it gives you a boost of energy! This is seriously the best “cure” for a sugar hangover.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a piece of candy or other sweet now and then. Just try not to overdo it!
