Survive the season of feasting
Beat the festive bloat – how to eat, drink, and still be merry
Whether it’s an office Christmas party, family gathering or get-together with friends, the festive season is a time we come together to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company – but it can put a tremendous strain on the digestive system, especially so if you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, chronic bloating, or suffer with constipation or acid reflux.
More alcohol, richer foods, and heightened stress levels are all likely to play a part in causing stomach upsets, not to mention headaches, skin problems, weight gain, fatigue, mood swings, and a UTI flare-up. It’s enough to make you want to cancel Christmas and spend it in bed! Yet it is difficult to avoid the alcohol and rich food – we are often expected to indulge at this time of year or end up feeling socially excluded if we do refrain.
Fortunately, you can get through this time relatively symptom-free if you have a plan of action and choose foods that are a little kinder to your tummy. All of this information and more, including how to get into that LBD without a swollen belly, survive the office Christmas party and other social events, and still enjoy your Christmas dinner, can be found in my Christmas Survival Guide.
