Did you overeat during Christmas time? This happens to many, so do not worry too much about it. This time of the year most people prepare more food than usually and most definitely eat more than their body needs.
So, what can you do after this overeating? How should you get back to your normal habits and lose the extra kilos you possibly gained?
Here are my most valuable tips for the after-Holiday season:
Implement intermittent fasting - your night fast should be 12 hours every day, this is the minimum. You can extend it to 14-16 hours or even longer. My experience is that intermittent fasting helps people in regulating their metabolism and makes it easier to reduce food intake in general. When eating the right food fasting is not necessary, but after a period of overeating it can be helpful.
Eat 1-3 real meals a day. DO NOT snack!
Eat enough of the right food, so your body feels satiated and you won’t have cravings, you won’t be hungry so you won’t overeat. Eat the right fat to protein ratio according to PKD, for the best result.
Drink when you are thirsty and drink water! If you had too much alcohol in the last month, just avoid it completely for a while.
Cut out all sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed foods. Eat REAL, whole foods, like meat, organs, animal fats, fish, eggs and some local, seasonal vegetables! Follow PKD, and you'll be fine! https://www.paleomedicina.com/paleolithic-ketogenic-diet/
Move! Walk and go back to your normal exercise routine. Exercise is good for you, but remember, you cannot outrun your bad eating habits.
Sleep enough, according to your needs. Go to bed before 10.30-11 pm.
