Have you ever ate an abundance amount of food and immediately regretted it afterward? Pretty sure we all have. There's been plenty of times when I ate an unreasonable amount of food and felt extremely guilty afterward. Here are some tips of what to do.
First off, don't beat yourself up too much, if at all. Learn from your mistakes, and the experience will eventually make you stronger later on.
Secondly, drink TONS of water! You might think the water is going to make you even more bloated and retain more water, but overall the water will flush out all the toxins in your body and move everything through your digestive system quicker. The water will also keep you full too of course. Green tea and other clean teas (that aren't filled with sugar of course) are really good for you. The tea will help flush out the toxins A LOT. There are so many teas out there that can do different things for you, like helping with sleep, giving you a more ‘positive' mood, and so on. I love tea!
Thirdly, DO NOT skip meals because your last meal was so huge. Go back to your normal pattern, and eat healthily. If you ate like crap in the morning, don't automatically think the rest of the day is a waste. You have plenty of more hours to make up for the morning meal. Also, don't skip out on your workout just because of the one bad meal. Remember, that one workout is better than not working out at all. In my opinion, every time I work out I automatically feel 100% back on my A game and ready to get back on track, rather than not working out at all and feeling like a lazy bum.
Fourthly, realize we are all human and slip up every now and then. Don't feel lonely in the process of changing your lifestyle, all these mistakes that you are going through are only making you a stronger person. You are also in the process of seeing what works for you. Something that works for someone else might not be the same for you, so don't get stressed. Someone might lose weight quicker than you or lose body fat quicker than you. Everyone's body is different and loses weight at different rates.
Last but not least, find an accountability partner that can help you stay on track. Do whatever works for YOU and makes you happy.
And as I've said before, be proud and congratulate yourself for even taking the step to be healthy. By simply putting in the effort to read fitness blogs, you are wanting to become healthier and better your lifestyle. Always try your best to keep a positive attitude.
