Recovering from a bout of overeating

Overdo it this week? You’re not alone! But don’t let it derail your progress or get you down! Here are some tips to get back on track:

  • Take some time to think about what contributed to overeating:
    • Was it simply the overwhelming amount of yummy options available?
    • Any triggers like stress or boredom?
  • Freeze any leftovers so you don’t continue picking at them. Transfer any items that have been left out to storage containers & put them away in the fridge or pantry. 
  • Eat from a plate at the table – no more snacking while standing at the pantry or fridge. 
  • Make hydration a priority.
  • Wait until you feel hungry to eat and then have a typical amount of healthy food – don’t restrict yourself – it won’t help!
  • Wait a few days before stepping back on the scale.
  • Commit to some movement – go for a walk or get back to your regularly scheduled workouts.
  • Don’t give yourself a hard time.  Remember – It’s normal to overeat at Thanksgiving, but be sure not to let it continue into the rest of the holiday season. 
  • Use your tracker & stay on track with your Super 60 habits!
