It happens- we eat too much, maybe drink too much and every once in a while that's ok! What happens after we indulge is what's important. It is easy to have one bad night and then tell yourself you've already made one bad food decision what's one more, this is where you stop yourself and hit the reset button.
Here are my suggestions for when you know you know you might overindulge:
1) Get in a good workout the day before and the day of indulgence.
2) Drink lots of water. Staying hydrated helps with bloating and can help you feel satiated, preventing you from overeating.
3) Have a workout planned for the next day, something that will get your blood pumping and a good sweat going.
4) Plan a healthy day of eating following your overindulgence; including lots of leafy greens, lean protein, and antioxidant rich foods.
