5 Ways To Detox After Thanksgiving Dinner

November 27, 2015 3 min read

If you are a hurting the day after Thanksgiving, you won't be alone. You ate your fill of stuffing, washed it down with wine and ate enough pie to do you until next Thanksgiving. While it was worth it in the moment, we're sure that bloated belly and hungover head are making you wish you had done otherwise. The good news is, our bodies are remarkably adept at cleansing themselves so going on a specific juice cleanse or detox diet is completely unnecessary. Our livers and kidneys will clean everything up for us! Hooray! But, there are a few things you can do help the process along.

1. Skip the packaging.

Spending the days after Thanksgiving putting good food into your body is a good way to speed things along. Nutritionist, Lisa Hayim, recommends skipping packaged, processed foods that are full of toxins and opting for whole, fresh foods. She says, "focus on whole, raw, fresh foods — especially fruits and vegetables. Foods like raw baby carrots, bell peppers and salads can flush the body with micronutrients and make a delicious snack. Try to have at least one fruit a day and one source of greens (a good place to get greens is by throwing them in your smoothie)."

2. Hydrate.

Drinking water is always a good idea when it comes to detoxing. Hayim explains, "hydration cannot be stressed enough during this time. While your liver and kidneys are working hard to filter the blood, consuming enough water is essential for keeping things moving quickly and fluidly. Begin your day with at least 16 ounces of water, preferably warm, and focus on consuming all day long." Green tea is also a good option when it comes to staying hydrated! edith water

3. Eat small meals.

While you may feel like never eating again, it is better to eat several small meals spread through the day to get your metabolism back to normal. Aim for 5-6 meals that are about 200-250 calories each. Make sure you are getting lean protein, fruits, vegetables and healthy fats to help restore the nutrients in your body.

4. Focus on healthy fats.

In case you didn't get the memo: fat is good for you! Not only do fats keep you full, (which is good when trying to maintain your body weight), healthy fats like nuts, avocado, and flax-seed oil can help reduce inflammation and get you back to normal.

5. Exercise.

Exercise is not only good for getting a killer body, it can also elevate your mood and help you eliminate toxins. While you may not feel like going for a 5k run, start out with a brisk walk and then try to work up a bit of a sweat. "Another way our body detoxifies is through sweat. In these winter months, it’s not always easy to work up a sweat. Try a hot yoga practice or a steam room, and remember to hydrate afterward!" Hayim says. So, if you ate your weight in gravy and mashed potatoes, don't beat yourself up too much. It happens. Follow these tips to treat your body right today and you'll be feeling like your old self in no time!
