You know it’s Thanksgiving when your gut is bloated, the top button of your pants is undone, and a terrible heartburn sends you to bed. Overeating might be causing some of these digestive pains, but there are several other measures you can take to avoid a post-Thanksgiving belly as well as help your body break down the fatty meal.
- Before the Thanksgiving dinner: Wait to eat until you are sitting down. It may be tempting to pick at the buffet of offerings in the kitchen before you take your place at the table, but it’s harder to control portions if you’re standing up and snagging bites here and there. By waiting, you actually prime your body for digestion. The smells and sights of the delicious buffet trigger the production of extra saliva and digestive acids to help break down food. If you don’t give your body enough time to produce these natural digestive aids, you will feel some discomfort and bloating later, as your body works harder to break down the food.
