The days between Christmas and New Year are the best to detoxify and let our body rest from the excesses of the New Year's Eve dinner





The brain was screaming to stop you but it couldn't. Too much pandoro, panettone or Russian salad and here you are, with a swollen belly complaining that you will never be able to fit into a pre-Christmas dress again. The solution? A mini-detox in three steps

The goal is to make you feel better in your body, not just lose weight, and you can make it last a day, a week or even longer (but contact a nutritionist). Here are some ideas, according to Dr. Sara Farnetti, internal medicine specialist and expert in metabolic diseases and functional nutrition.

“After Christmas we have to rebalance our hormones. Bring the metabolism back to zero, recovering the native one and then restarting. This does not mean fasting "- Farnetti specified - “but detoxify by choosing the right foods, that is, those we have neglected. The organism is fast and only one day is enough, to then reintroduce everything slowly, with common sense and in the right quantities ".

Suspend

"Try to suspend for a couple of meals the sugars in bread, pasta and rice, the bad proteins and fats that we have eaten in quantity" - explained the expert -. We ate a lot, and yet we can't stop ”. Also stop fried foods and alcohol to help your body rest and recover.

Reintegrate

"Instead, replenish the foods that have been missing: especially raw vegetables, because they will also help us to give a sense of satiety useful to keep hunger at bay that continues to be felt despite the doses of food introduced "

He exaggerates

Go overboard with these liquids: herbal teas, antioxidant green tea, broths, and most of all water, are all great for your body. A lemon juice in the morning is also a good way to start the day.



Don't stop these good habits after the holidays, they can be good for you all year round. And don't forget that doing a little exercise several times a week will greatly increase the benefits of your detox.
