Holidays are filled with love, family, magic memory making and all that good stuff...but they are also filled with food hangovers, brain fog, sleepless nights and unhealthy guts!
Whether you are traveling or staying put at home - follow these 5 hacks to help you combat that holidazzzze:
1. ALLOW AT LEAST 12 HOURS BETWEEN MEALS
It takes our bodies 12 hours to absorb and assimilate all the calories from the day before. At the 13th hour-mark your body kicks into ketosis and starts burning fat efficiently!
2. UP YOUR PROBIOTICS.
Good gut health is where it all starts. Take one in the am on an empty stomach and take one right before you go to bed.
3. TAKE A DIGESTIVE ENZYME.
Our bodies digest raw food easily, but when it comes to cooked, especially animal proteins we need a little help! Here is my favorite brand!
4. HAVE SNACKS AT THE READY.
I want you eating protein and fat to keep full - NOT starchy carbs that send you on a roller coaster ride of crashes and cravings. Think almond butter with celery, hard boiled eggs, even pieces of grilled chicken.
5. SLEEP DEEP.
I love this product to ensure deep sleep. It's natural and helps you wind down after a day of socializing and possibly too many cocktails.
Lastly, GO easy on yourself. This is not the time to try to jump start new eating habits, deprive yourself of calories so you can gorge later, OR beat yourself up for doing anything in between.
