How to Detox After the Big Meal

If you ate more than you wanted to at your Thanksgiving meal, you are not alone. If you want to help the digestion process along, here are a few ideas to help.

The night after the meal:

  • Drink ginger tea; it helps to improve digestion.
  • Chewable papaya enzyme can help promote digestion as well.

The next morning:

  • Oatmeal is really high in insoluble fiber, which helps the gut get things moving.
  • Drink plenty of water to help the body digest and eliminate waste.

The rest of the day:

  • Eat foods high in insoluble fiber, like carrot sticks with your turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread.
  • Get exercise: Nothing helps more than a little motion and a little sweating to help the body process and burn the extra calories you consumed.
