The holidays are meant for indulging ourselves, so it's totally okay if you had more ham than usual! But after an entire week of feasting, it's essential to bounce back, the healthy way. Here, simple and safe ways you can recover from a holiday binge.

1. Drink up.
During the holidays, you probably guzzled a lot of alcohol or maybe you slept a lot later than usual—both can dehydrate your body. For two days, we suggest that you drink half of your body weight of water in ounces. Let’s say you weigh 120 pounds, make sure to consume 60 ounces of water in a day. Doing so will reduce sugar cravings, plump up your skin, and flush out toxins naturally.

2. Never skip meals.
Tempted to say no to lunch? Skipping meals will only signal your body to slow down its metabolism. Translation: "Body, let’s store more food as fat." Eat five small meals a day, so you’ll never feel hungry. And yes, that means you shouldn’t miss breakfast, too. If you’re running late, blitz a fruit smoothie to fill you up as you rush to work.

3. Plan your next healthy meal.
It’s easy to shout, "I won’t overeat anymore!" after a holiday binge, but ignoring food altogether will only lead you to binge-eat more junk. By eating healthy, we mean eat more veggies and fruits. Don't want to just eat salad all day long? There are other healthy dishes you can enjoy. Check out this list for starters.

4. Gradually increase your physical activity.
It’s tempting to sign up for gym memberships at this point, but you have to be sure that you can commit to it. To save you money and to prep your body for a serious fitness journey, do some light exercises on your own first. Try brisk-walking, running, or cycling. Also, there are several fitness apps you can download—do your pre-game before the big game!
