The day After
Start the day with water and lemon. Take a cup of glass and fill it with lukewarm water. Squeeze a lemon in it and drink this. This mix will not only improve your digestion, but it is extremely helpful if you feel bloated.
Don’t skip breakfast! The day after overeating, you probably think that the best thing you can do is skip breakfast. Yet, it is recommended to eat something light, like: banana, some Greek yogurt, a toast bread with a layer of peanut butter or honey, an apple, etc. Don’t punish yourself with starving, because once you skip breakfast, there is a huge possibility that you will overeat again throughout the day.
Drink water. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water in order to help your body cope with the extra food.
Stay away from salt. Salt makes the body to keep more water in it, so the bloating increases. If you need to have a salty snack, just take some unsalted nuts, or popcorn.
Eat white rice for lunch. White rice digests very easy in your organism, calms the stomach, and it is extremely good for getting rid of diarrhea (which happens often after you overeat).
