The Super Bowl is regarded as the country’s most popular single sporting event and is seen by more than 110 million viewers. This year’s Super Bowl will be held on February 5 at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, but the party venue is all over the globe. Millions of people will be hosting grass roots Super Bowl parties as local fans cheer on their favorite team.
Food and drinks will flow in abundance. Super Bowl parties are an excuse to binge on classic game foods such as buffalo wings, nachos, pizza, onion rings, French fries, and other grease-laden foods. Drinks include soda, beer, drink mixes and liquor—a full range to ensure that everybody is in high spirits as the game progresses.
Beating the Bloat
The high-calorie food and drinks make great company on Super Bowl Sunday but not so much the day after. Partiers often end up bloated and tired due to unhealthy food and excessive alcohol intake.
If you find yourself drooping under a Super Bowl hangover, here are a few ideas to help you bounce back:
- Drink lemon water – Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C. It also contains antioxidants which can help rid the body of toxins after a day of binge eating and drinking. Water will help the body rehydrate if you have had too much to drink. Prepare your lemon water by cutting a lemon into quarters and squeezing one or two of the pieces into a glass of filtered water. Drink the lemon water first thing in the morning—without added sugar.
- Eat fiber – Fiber-rich food naturally cleanses the digestive track of toxins and impurities. Whole grains, fruits, and vegetables are all high in fiber. Broccoli mitigates the effects of excessive estrogen from processed foods.
- Exercise – Exercise will burn calories, and sweating helps remove toxins from the body. Alternate high intensity and moderate intensity workouts for more potent results.
- One-hour detox drinks – These drinks provide an effective way to rapidly eliminate accumulated toxins from your body. Herbal detox drinks contain extracts of milk thistle, dandelion root, and burdock root, elements that are critical for cleansing the liver and other organs of accumulated toxins.
If your day-after Super Bowl stupor has you dragging, hit “reset” on your body with a one-hour detox drink. It’s a quick and powerful way to get your body feeling healthy and energetic once again.
