The holiday season is here, which means authentic feasts, and dinner parties with the most comforting and hearty foods. That’s the holiday spirit: good food, great drinks, close friends and lots of laughs.
Of course, if you’re trying to take care of yourself and your overall health during the holiday season, you’ll have to control yourself — you just can’t eat all you want as much as you want. Here are 5 things that happen to your body if you overeat at Christmas.
You miss all the fun
For starters, overeating makes you feel sleepy, bloated, gassy and cranky. This means that overeating during those special holiday dinners won’t allow you to enjoy the rest of the party.
These are the times for getting together with friends and family, sometimes with people close to your heart that you often don’t see. Don’t eat so much that you can’t enjoy their company. That would be a missed opportunity.
Don’t overeat and don’t drink too much either; that’s the best way of enjoying the holiday season.
