Bouncing Back After A Day of Bad Eating

We all have days (or weeks, even) when we don’t quite stick to the eating plan we have set out for ourselves. Whether you’ve attended a party, been social with friends, had a cheat day, or otherwise, there are a few good things you can do the next day to help you get back on track. While going on a cleanse often leads to yo-yoing, these ideas will help you to understand why you’ve overindulged and what you can do to turn it around.

  1. Acknowledge the real problem- that you didn’t take care of yourself and put foods into your body that it didn’t need or really want.
  2. Take good care of yourself. Catch up on necessary things, buy a bouquet of flowers, whatever it is that helps you to feel good- without food.
  3. Pay attention to your body and do something to bring feeling back after the numbness of indulgence.
  4. Take good care of yourself with food. Wait until you are hungry, pace yourself, and get back on the right track with your plan.
  5. Have a conversation with yourself about the root cause that led to the binge eating or overindulgence.
