According to our traditions, the New Year’s table should be filled with various dishes. For this reason, many people are extremely difficult to withstand such a load on the stomach. But do not worry. There is a way out of any situation. Consider a few effective ways to help you defeat gluttony and give you the opportunity to have fun in the New Year and Christmas holidays.
Ban yourself fasting during the day
Do you think that if you do not eat food before the New Year’s Eve, the food will be tastier? Absolutely erroneous opinion. Do not torment your stomach with hunger, let it get enough. Overeating occurs mainly on an empty stomach. Eat a small sandwich with a vegetable salad. Taim way, you can get enough, and will not rush to the New Year’s table, like a hungry wolf.
Prepare for the holiday
For therapeutic purposes, drink a course of chamomile tincture, which will allow you to calm down the stomach wall and prepare it for future meals. Just remember, medical chamomile should be purchased not from attendants on the shelves, but in pharmacy kiosks.
Ban yourself the wrong drinks
Carbonated drinks are not for you today. In order to avoid stomach problems, stock up on some mineral water that will help you in case of heartburn.
Holiday feasts are impossible without dessert. But at the same time I want to try each of the dishes exhibited on the festive table. But how to overcome the eating? Yes, very simple! It is important to put food in small portions. The spoon should be small. So you can try every dish and avoid overeating.
These include low-calorie foods and dishes. For example, vegetable salads or dishes, using chicken and dressed with low-calorie mayonnaise.
Try to eat food slowly, while chewing it thoroughly. Nutritionists say that information about food getting into the stomach and its saturation reaches the brain within half an hour. Divide the dishes into small pieces and enjoy the food.
Learn how to take short breaks between meals. Have more fun, dance, chat with friends and participate in various contests. Take breaks in the form of small walks in the fresh air. During this time, food can be digested, as a result of which a sufficient amount of space will be freed up to receive a new meal.
