Halloween has come and gone, you are left with are random costumes, lots of candy, funny pictures and memories, and a sugar hangover from the aforementioned candy. Because the candies are so small, it is easy to lose count of how many you have actually eaten. Here are some tips and tricks to overcome that candy hangover after a long night of candy eating that might leave you with a headache or feeling sick and bloated.
→ Water. Avoid carbonated liquids and drinks full of sugar. Flush those sugars out of your body and mouth. Water will also help get rid of a headache. Try adding slices of lemon, lime, oranges, or strawberries into your water to give it a unique and refreshing flavor.
→ Fruits and Vegetables. One of the best sources of natural sugar comes from fruit, so this is the best way to satisfy your sugar cravings when you feel your hand reaching towards the leftover candy. Don’t feel guilty about indulging in these foods because fruits and vegetables are great for your health.
→ Fiber. Fiber is a great way to detox and reduce bloating. Fiber helps control blood sugar levels as well as lowers blood cholesterol levels. Carrots, fruits, beans, nuts, brown rice, and whole-grain foods contain fiber that will contribute to relieving your candy hangover.
→ Jog. Sometimes an efficient trip to the gym can turn a bad day around. If you have a headache or belly ache, a short jog can take your mind off of it.
