I Ate Too Much - Now What?

By Charlotte Scott

​We've all experienced the moment when you realized you've eaten too much. Then, the guilt sets in, but don't get defeated there is something you can do.​

Do you remember learning to ride a bike? For most of us it took several tries and many scrapes and bruises before we could confidently ride on our own. Practice makes perfect. 

So switching gears (no pun intended), if you had 10 too many servings of that special holiday candy or feel like you out did yourself at the Christmas dinner, get up and dust off the frustration and get back on track. 

Here's how: 
  • Eat regular meals -- get back on a schedule
  • Eat smaller portions
  • Eat slowly 
  • Eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day 
  • Drink 8 cups of water
  • Be realistic and specific in your goals 
  • Make sure exercise is part of your plan
  • If the weather permits, you could go for a bike ride
