Tis the season of feeling bloated and generally toxic from all the things you eat and drink over the holidays that you normally would pass on. How about some detox tools to limit the damage before it starts?

Healthy Holiday Pre-Detox Guide

by Lynn Baer, M.A., N.C.

Usually the time for a body detox is after the New Year, when you are feeling bloated and generally toxic from all the things you ate and drank over the holidays that you normally would pass on. Add to that the stress of seeing friends & family that you might not want to hang out with the rest of the year and your body has become a physical and mental toxic waste dump.

So what if you could enter the binging, toxic diet holidays with some detox tools that limits the damage before it starts?

Let’s go through the most obvious and least effective suggestions first.

   Related information:

1. Before going to that big family get together, eat some healthy foods at home first so you are not as hungry and it’s easier to turn down the bad stuff.

The problem with that strategy is that if you are addicted to the taste of certain things, you will put those calorie builders in your mouth anyway. Unless you are willing to chew on them for awhile and them spit most of it out, preloading your stomach with salads and vegetables at home before you have fried dumplings and pecan pie with Mom and Dad cannot work. Spitting out Mom’s cooking will really insult the whole family plus they will be surfing the web trying to find a rehab center for your newly revealed eating disorder.

2. Don't fast the entire day before a holiday dinner to make room for everything that will be served.

Fasting before a big meal has been shown to be detrimental in a number of ways. When you starve the body it actually thinks that food is scarce so when you do finally eat your body will try and store as much of it as fat as possible. Even worse, an empty stomach will build up stomach acid and so your big family get together will start with heart-burn, then move to a way too full feeling after gorging and then indigestion as your alimentary tract tries to figure out how to digest all the different things you put in there with such volume and abandon.

3. Taking time out during a long and involved holiday meal and vomiting the 1st and 2nd course into the toilet and then returning to the table for more.

Although successfully practiced for thousands of years and attributed to the binge and purge cycles of banquets in ancient Rome this is actually an eating disorder called bulimia. In addition to damaging the esophagus or food tube, bulimia can turn into a food addiction and way of life like it has for many jockeys, models, and actresses.

Next week in plenty of time before Christmas we will show you some things that are not harmful and do work.
