POST EASTER BLOAT!

What starts in fun, ends in tears….. don’t be so hard on yourself.

Life is short!

If you’re slowly emerging from a post easter chocolate haze, after having fanged your way through too many easter treats to count, feeling a little sluggish and looking for ways to get back on track after eating your body weight in chocolate? Askinsolution’s trusted Dietitian Ellen Foster saves the day with some helpful, healthy and mindful eating tips to put a pin in that post easter bloat!

Back to basics

 Maintain optimal Hydration

 Mix up your water intake with herbal teas.

Limit alcohol intake

 Alcohol acts a diuretic which may contribute to dehydration

Eat lots of vegetables

Load up on a variety of vegetables and fruits.

No added salts and sugars

Limit your intake of foods containing added salts and sugars.

Eat in

Avoid takeaway foods which are usually high in saturated fats, salts and are energy dense.

Eat when you’re hungry

Eat when hungry and not out of habit or boredom! Stop when you are full.

Don’t try to starve yourself

Starving yourself will only lead to binging or over eating later.

Choose the wholegrain option

Brown rice, whole-wheat pastas and breads are higher in fibre, keeping you feeling fuller for longer and helping to maintain blood sugar levels.

Choose lean meats,fish and poultry.

Aim to get 60 minutes of moderate exercise in, most days of the

week.
