Even the healthiest of us can’t help but get into the Halloween fun, and while everything’s good in moderation, sometimes a night of temptation means going overboard (no regrets!). Whether you’ve snacked on too many trick-or-treating purchases or ate the candy from your little one’s candy bag, here are some ideas to detox when Halloween is over.
1. Drink More Water
Make water consumption a priority the day after your Halloween festivities; not only does it help flush out all your indulgent decisions, it will give you more energy to tackle the day.2. Break the sugar addiction
Eating a lot of sugar will only make you crave it more. If you are craving sweets, take 5 days to wean yourself off sugar and refined carbs by eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies instead.
3. Fight fatigue
Whether you hosted a Halloween party or spent an exhausting couple of hours corralling trick-or-treaters, the holiday can eat into your sleep time. To make sure you don’t feel tired all day, fill your diet with fatigue-fighting foods - nuts, seeds, leafy greens, whole grains, fish - and make it a priority to go to sleep early tonight.
4. Eat nourishing foods
You’ve had enough processed food, now it is time for some real foods. Eating a produce-rich meal plan will help your body crave the good instead of the bad.
5. Move more
Get your metabolism going – and sweat out all the bad stuff – with an intense workout; if you can’t bear the thought of exercise, go for a walk or do a few detoxifying yoga poses to get things moving.
