The First Thing You Should Do After You Eat Too Much
It's happened to us all, whether at a holiday or just a particularly great weeknight meal — we've eaten too much and feel heavy, bloated, sluggish, and uncomfortable. If you want to get fast relief, the first thing you should do is go for a walk.
Even though you might feel a strong urge to go lay on the couch, that's not a good idea, because lying down can lead to indigestion, heartburn, and acid reflux, and your stomach can empty more quickly when the body is upright. One of the best things you can do is go for a walk, even if it's only for five or ten minutes.
Sipping water can help prevent constipation and can also help flush out some of the excess sodium that you likely consumed. Pass on the carbonated drinks though, which can make you feel even more bloated.
