A few days ago, Bollywood beauty Alia Bhatt confessed that she loves home-cooked food, and just can’t get enough of it. Frankly, neither can we! We all know when mum cooks our favourite food with love, it’s impossible to resist it. No wonder, we end up eating large portions. The result is heaviness and uneasiness. But you can avoid it, if you do these six things right after finishing up a large meal.
Well, you must have heard everyone say that you shouldn’t exercise right after a meal. But on the other hand, vajrasana is the only yoga pose that you must perform after eating a large meal, because this pose helps in improving your digestion.
When you do vajrasana, the position obstructs the blood flow to your leg, and increases the size of your stomach, which improves uneasiness and you feel better. This also helps you with problems like gas and constipation, which tend to occur after consuming a large meal.
This also helps in restricting problems like gas and constipation which tend to happen after a large meal.
Wait for half an hour after eating your meal, and sip on some warm water. You can also have green tea to detox better. These hot beverages help to remove toxins, and metabolise the digestive juices in your body.
If you’ve eaten a large meal, don’t forget to have a bowl of yogurt or a glass of buttermilk, or any other form of probiotic to smoothen the digestive process.
Yes, it is very important for two reasons – one, if you don’t brush, then the food that stays in your mouth can lead to bad breath and cavity. Secondly, the food that’s left in your mouth can trigger hunger, making you binge on more food.
Just a stroll – no running or brisk walking. You need to take out just 10 minutes and take a walk. Avoid sitting or lying down, as this will slow the digestion process.
This is very important. Most of us don’t think while we eat, but after we’ve done, we start stressing about what we’ve eaten and how much we’ve eaten. Do not do this at all, because stress can lead to rise in cortisol levels, which is even worse. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the food you eat.
So ladies, the next time when you indulge in a cheat meal and feel like you’ve eaten way beyond your capacity, then try out these tricks!
