Sugar is a tricky thing. It tastes so good, but it can have some pretty negative effects on your body. If you eat too much sugar (or any food that has a high hypoglycemic index) and then don’t get enough exercise or sleep, you may experience an energy crash later in the day. You may also notice physical symptoms like acne breakouts, dry skin, or feeling hungry again soon after eating dinner.
If this sounds familiar to you, don’t worry! There are 5 ways to feel better after eating too much sugar that we will discuss below!
Drink more water. Not only is it good for your physical health, but drinking plenty of water will help you feel full and lessen the hunger pangs that follow eating too much sugar.
Place a glass of lemonade next to an empty plate before sitting down to dinner so that you’re already prepared with something sweet to sip on just in case!
Eat less processed food products that have high levels of fructose corn syrup or artificial sugars (or both!). These can really mess up how your body reacts because they don’t contain any nutritional value – all they do is provide unnecessary calories without leaving behind anything positive like vitamins or minerals. Replace these goodies with foods like whole fruit instead! You’ll get better nutrients and a better mood!
Drink a cup of tea after eating if you’re feeling especially emotional. Tea has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels and ward off anxiety, and it’s gentle enough that you can have another one right away if needed without worrying about becoming addicted or building up a tolerance. You’ll feel so much better within minutes!
Take care of your teeth by brushing them more often with baking soda toothpaste (or any other type) since they will be under attack from the constant exposure to acid in sugary foods like lemonade or gumdrops.
Try supplementing with Omega-Fatty Acids for best results as an alternative treatment – this is something I’ve found through research and personal experience at times when my teeth were really feeling the effects of too much sugar.
For a more immediate solution, try chewing on gum or mints to freshen your breath and give you something else to focus your mouth around for awhile. If it’s just making them feel dry or irritated, take some time in between snacks – this will also help if you’re thirsty from all that water loss due to bacteria growth when there isn’t enough saliva production after eating sugary foods like donuts or candy bars!
Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day so as not to get dehydrated while trying not to eat anything sweet (or even drink a lot). Listerine is great because it has fluoride which strengthens teeth enamel and promotes good oral health overall. It also has a cool mint flavor that will freshen your breath.Try chewing sugarless gum or candy for the same effect – it’s just as good if not better than regular gums and candies!
If you’re someone who doesn’t have time to wait, try cinnamon sticks or peppermint oil which can be placed in water (hot or iced) to make tea/coffee with extra sweetness without all of that added fructose from white sugar. And if you find yourself really craving something sweet, drink some grapefruit juice instead because they actually contain more natural sugars like sucrose than oranges do but are less acidic on the stomach so don’t cause bacteria growth.
Mental health: how it feels when people judge me
This is a very tough one to deal with because there’s not much you can do but try your best and learn how to be happy on the inside. Living in society will always have its ups and downs so just focus on what makes you feel good, rather than other people’s opinions of how you should look or act. And if it gets really bad, then talk to someone about it – whether that be friends/family members who are aware of what’s going on or professional help like counseling from an organization such as Child help National which specializes in child abuse prevention (800) 422-child [link]
Breakfast: oatmeal with nuts and berries
A bowl of oatmeal with nuts and berries is a great breakfast to start the day off without much sugar. The oats will provide you with fiber, protein, and carbs which all work together to make you feel satisfied longer lasting than just one sugary thing from the morning hours. Add some fruit on top for an extra antioxidant boost!
Grabbing something not so bad: celery sticks dipped in peanut butter
This might seem like it contradicts what we’ve been saying but if you’re craving crunchy foods then this could be your best bet. Celery has zero calories, making it guilt free as long as there’s no added ingredients such as dressing or high quality cheese that are going to add more sodium or fat into the equation.
Sipping on a drink: apple cider
Apple ciders are great because they’re low in sugar and high in antioxidants. The good thing about this is that it’s not going to make you feel too full like some of the other alternatives such as water or tea. You’ll get hydrated, have more energy, and after drinking one glass you can add an additional snack if needed without feeling regretful afterward!
Bite sized foods: cheese sticks with fruit dip
There’s no denying how delicious these snacks might be but don’t overindulge yourself before realizing what your body actually needs from food. Cheese will provide protein for those who need it plus the fruit dip won’t break down into sugars like some other dips will.
Exercise: cardio Cardio is a great workout because it’ll get the blood pumping and allow for better digestion of food afterward. The best thing to do would be outdoor walking or running, but even taking advantage of stairs at work can count as exercise! So go ahead and nap in on your lunch break then power through that afternoon with a little walk outside before feeling guilty about how much you ate earlier today.
