Reset your body

If you overeat, it can make you feel bloated, tired, and lethargic. Try these ideas to help reset your stomach and boost your energy.

  • Sip on ginger tea. Ginger can help with problems like bloating and nausea. Be careful of ginger supplements though, as high doses of ginger can increase your risk of bleeding.
  • Stay away from peppermint. Peppermint can cause gas and upset your stomach. Have a mint or two, but don't overdo it.
  • Choose water with lemon instead of soft drinks. Sodas and fizzy drinks can give you gas and heartburn. While it is important to stay hydrated to prevent constipation and get rid of excess sodium from your body, don't drink too much at once. Have small sips throughout the day.
  • Keep an eye on your fibre intake. Foods rich in fibre, like apples, bran, beans, almonds, broccoli, and spinach, are good for you. But if high-fibre foods are new to your diet, they can make you feel more bloated. Add them in slowly and drink more water.
  • Put down that salt shaker. Too much salt can cause you to retain water and make you feel bloated.
  • Walk, but don't run, after meals. While exercise is healthy, you can get an upset stomach if you exercise too hard right after a meal. Try to wait 10 to 15 minutes after eating before walking, and be sure to start slowly.
  • Speak to your doctor or pharmacist about medications that can help with gas, bloating, indigestion, or heartburn. Many of these medications are available without a prescription. They can explain what your options are, as well as the benefits and risks.
