There is no festive holiday without indulging in sweet, juicy fried Chicken, that delicious party Jollof Rice, or perhaps that Egusi soup with soft Pounded Yam that could put you into a sleep coma. With a couple of indulgences here and there in amazing treats and goodies, it leaves many of us feeling the aftermath. It is completely normal but getting back on track with a healthier diet can help restore balance and energy.

This overindulgence can result in stomach pain, indigestion or perhaps food poisoning, which can also lead to sluggishness and inability to do anything.

Here are some tips to clean up all the junks of the holiday for a clean slate of 2024.

  • Submerged your body in water, no that’s a joke. I mean drink half your body weight in water which helps your body metabolize carbs.
  • Eat up a lot of vegetables because the fibres help burn out all the small chops, pizza and shawarma you might have eaten during the holidays.
  • Be mindful of portion sizes to avoid overeating. Use smaller plates and take your time to savor each bite of that succulent meal.
  • Replace sugary snacks and drinks with healthier alternatives like fresh fruits, nuts, or yogurt.
  • Aim for regular physical activity. Even short bursts of movement throughout the day can make a difference. Get up from your chair or bed and take a walk around your compound or office, stretch out those knotted muscles.
  • Plan balanced meals that include a variety of nutrients to nourish your body. Aim for a mix of protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates to keep you feeling full and satisfied.

Cleaning up your diet after the festive holidays is a gradual process that requires patience, commitment, and determination. By making small, sustainable changes and being mindful of your choices, you will find yourself on your way to a healthier lifestyle.  Embrace this journey as a positive step towards overall well-being.
