Is Thanksgiving over? Good, now we can get back on track to staying healthy. Some times we agree with having big dinners on holidays since they can be treated as cheat meals. Just don’t make a habit out of overeating and you’ll get the best result if you’re trying to lose weight or just stay healthy. After eating all that food, you should do your research and start an easy post-Thanksgiving detox so you can cleanse your body and get back on track.
How to do an Easy Post-Thanksgiving Detox and get Maximum Benefits
Before jumping on the detox train, take a moment and analyze your health and fitness level. A good cleanse will flush the toxic substances but it can take a toll on your body if it’s not used to it. With that in mind we’ll go forward and see how to cleanse our bodies on a beginner and intermediate level. We don’t encourage extreme cleanses since they may do more harm than good.
Post-Thanksgiving Beginner Detox
For people who want to start a detox for the first time it’s better to start slow and don’t get disappointed if the results you wanted don’t seem to show up at first. Beginners can start a post-Thanksgiving detox by eliminating sugar and caffeine from their diet. Seeing this through will allow you to have a solid starting point for a healthier diet and further cleanses.
Now, to cleanse your body from these highly addictive substances, you’ll need to do the following:
Gradually remove the substances from your diet. You should treat this as a real addiction and don’t remove them all at once. Start slow and cut back on your caffeine and sugar intake then gradually remove them from your diet. Try to replace coffee with green tea and don’t eat deserts – switch to fruit.
Replace the cravings. If you want to cut back on your caffeine intake, set up a morning ritual to replace the coffee. Work out in the morning to get that extra boost of energy you’re looking for. If you want dessert, drink some tea or brush your teeth so your brain gets the signal that you’re done eating.
Intermediate Post-Thanksgiving Cleanse
Eating all that meat on Thanksgiving will surely take a tool on your health. It’s a good idea to give your body a break from these substances and try something different. For example, try to eat more vegetarian foods if not switch entirely for a few weeks. There are two easy ways to do so.
First, you’ll need to plan your dinners for the next week. Most people have meat for dinner so try to replace it with fish, tofu or whole grains. It’s easier to go on with your day knowing what you’re going to have for dinner.
Second, be careful when going out to eat if you don’t have time to cook. Switch from pizza to sushi or some other Asian restaurants since they will have vegetarian options.
Dietary food chances for a good post-Thanksgiving detox
Here are some example to help you with the holiday cleanse. To flush out the bad substances from your body try the following:
Breakfast: Lemon Water and Fruit. Hot lemon water has a soothing effect for your body and it has a filling effect, curbing your cravings. Add some slices of lemon in boiling hot water and let it steep for about 5 minutes. Next to this, try to eat an apple you can cook in a skillet for 5 minutes.
Lunch: Red Pepper Tomato Soup. Keep your meals clean and hydrate yourself with the help of a soup. Ingredients: red bell pepper, garlic, diced tomatoes and whole almonds for taste. Of course you can choose any other soup as long as it’s easy on your digestive system.
Dinner: Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts. This meal has plenty of fiber but it’s also to digest. Brussels sprouts is known for normalizing blood sugar levels and can help you forget those bloating sensations you get after big meal on Thanksgiving.
