It’s no secret that the holidays are upon us and it’s only a matter of days before we all go into feast mode. And when it comes to the Filipino household, a feast is not complete without a spread of favorite dishes, desserts, and drinks. All of these combined with great company and a well-rehearsed song (or five!) can make us feel like we can eat and drink more than we should.

In an ideal world, we’d all love to eat, drink, and be merry as we celebrate during the holidays, but there’s nothing sexy about indigestion especially when you’re expecting to participate in a series of parties. We listed down five ways you can remedy the effects of overeating so you can prepare ahead.

1. TAKE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

Also known as ACV, apple cider vinegar is rich in acetic acid and probiotics that help keep our gut healthy and aid digestion. The thing with apple cider vinegar is that some people may find its natural sourness unpleasant especially when taken in liquid format–after all, it is vinegar. Don’t worry, ACV capsules like BestShape work the same way while sparing you and your throat from the sour aftertaste.

2. SIP WATER AFTER MEAL

Overeating can sometimes lead to bloatedness and we all know that this isn’t a good feeling. Help your body flush out the sodium you’ve ingested by sipping water after your meal. That being said, remember not to go overboard on the water since drinking too much can make you feel full even more.

3. Add fruits and vegetables after your next meals

While staying hydrated is key to relieving bloatedness, fresh produce also helps in ridding your body of excess sodium. Include fiber-rich fruits and vegetables in your upcoming meals or eat them for snacks after you’re able to rest from the effects of overeating.

4. Resist napping

It’s easy to feel sleepy after you’ve had a meal; we’ve all been there. And while it’s so much more convenient to recline in the chair closest to you, it’s best if you fight the urge to sleep after you’ve had a big meal. When we lie down after we eat, the food moves back up our digestive tract and can increase the chances of heartburn.

5. Go for a walk

You can stimulate your body’s digestion by taking a walk after eating. Be mindful of your pace though and make sure you’re not moving too fast. A 15-minute stroll around the neighborhood can help you ease your stomach from the discomfort of overeating.

Bonus tip—slow down

Our stomachs expand when we eat and it sends our brain a signal when we’re full so that we can stop eating. However, this cycle can be disrupted when we chew a little too fast because it makes us think that we’re not full yet even when we have actually overeaten. Avoid upsetting your stomach by chewing slowly. It’s also a good opportunity to enjoy your meal more whether it’s during the holiday season or a regular dinner.

As you work your appetite and mentally prepare for the festivities, make sure that you keep your gut healthy so that you can enjoy your holiday meals this merry season without worries. BestShape Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules help strengthen your digestion and they help balance your cholesterol and sugar levels too! Take one (1) BestShape capsule after a meal and skip the sour aftertaste while reaping the health benefits of ACV.
