Super Bowl food, parties, snacks… regrets.
If you’re like a lot of people, you’re over-indulging right now while watching the Super Bowl.
You might have a food hangover tomorrow. And not just the stuff hanging over your belt.
Your pants are tighter. Your shirt is tighter, you feel icky, you have LOTS of regret.
Thoughts like, “Why did I eat that 4th piece of pizza?” or “I ate how many chicken wings” might even come to mind.
If you’re a scale jumper, you know who you are, you might even be cursing yourself tomorrow morning!!
You will notice that your weight will be up after the weekend festivities.
If you indulging, stop it there… don’t over-indulge.
For those of you professional dieters, you’re likely trying to do some kind of math to figure out how in the world you are going to exercise off 3 -5 lbs of pizza x beer + nachos – water / chicken wings + chips (insert a lot of math lingo here) = WEIGHT GAIN!!
For those that have been at this weight loss game for a while you will know that a pound of fat is about 3500 calories and with your rough estimate there was no way that you scarfed down that many calories this weekend.
Maybe you didn’t and I really hope you didn’t eat over 3500 calories. So, why the weight gain???
Drum roll please…………
SODIUM & SUGAR
All of that party food tends to be loaded with sodium.
Women have a terrible time with hormones and water weight.
Men will be feeling the super bowl belly in the morning as well!
Oh and all that sauce, alcohol, sweetness…. it’s all sugar.
Don’t stress, I have your post super bowl binge recover plan.
How to overcome this….well, exercise and proper eating. You need to move your body! Oh and don’t use excuses like super events to sacrifice sound nutrition in the first place!
Don’t just talk about how you want to be fit. Become fit. Show up and do what has to be done!
Here are some other steps to take to get back to your pre-super-bowl weight:
Action Step #1: Water, water and more water. That is your drink of choice. You need at least 3-4 litres to flush that sodium out.
Action Step #2: Add 2-3 cups of dark leafy greens to your food intake today (spinach, kale, etc)
Action Step #3: Workout!!! You need to sweat out that sodium and fat.
Action Step #4: Have a protein shake (add in some spinach). Feed your muscles the nutrition they need.
Action Step #5: REPEAT tomorrow and the next day!!
Enjoy the rest of the game.
