We have been on quarantine for five months already and recently we have gone back to Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) from General Community Quarantine, so yes, we are again, back to stricter rules and regulations in the hopes to be able to restrategize while minimizing the risk of transmission. As that is the case, since the start of quarantine, we have found ourselves in the company of food even more than before. We have had a bunch of deliveries and we will be having a lot of deliveries in the future, too, as deliveries have become a go-to activity of ours, especially since the New Normal has been rolled out.
As we got hooked with having our food delivered almost everyday, it sure got us over-eating, too – we are not even going to deny this as it is apparent in our Pages anyway. And so, if you have found yourself in the cycle of having your cravings delivered from time to time and having a hard time breaking that cycle which probably have led you to over-eating, too, here some tips for you to do so you could avoid heartburn and hyper-acidity which are both caused by overeating.
1. Order Healthier Yummies
There’s a notion that eating healthy is more expensive or that healthy food doesn’t taste right, but that’s where you are wrong. Food has come a long way, too, as there are a lot of food innovations that have come about these past few years. Eating healthy doesn’t mean all you have to eat are greens, because eating healthy actually means having a balanced diet. You could subscribe to a meal plan or check out online stores that have healthier options that will indeed satisfy your cravings as well!
2. Space Out Your Eating Time
It’s true that eating is a fun activity, but there is a difference between eating because you are hungry or you need to eat and eating because you are bored. Eating just because you are bored isn’t really that good as your body won’t be able to digest your food properly which will lead you to feeling bloated as well as have you overeat, so make sure to eat during meal times and spread your snack time during the day as well.
3. Stay Hydrated
Never underestimate the power of drinking water as this helps in maintaining the balance of bodily fluids which digestion is included in. Yes, drinking water helps in digesting the food you have eaten properly, too, so make sure you are drinking water as much as you need. Plus, bonus water benefits are it flushes body waste and boosts skin health, so drink water, got it?
4. Go for AlwaysG after every meal!
And if all else fails, take Sodium Alginate Sodium Bicarbonate Calcium Carbonate (Gaviscon Double Action) for relief that lasts up to 4 hours. Sodium Alginate Sodium Bicarbonate Calcium Carbonate (Gaviscon Double Action) provides dual relief from heartburn and indigestion as it helps neutralizes stomach acids and helps stop reflux of food to your esophagus. You can take sachets and tablets after meals and before going to bed as directed, and enjoy the magical relief that will keep you going for the rest of the day.
There you have it – just a few helpful reminders for you to keep in mind during this tough time! Let’s not forget that even though we are at home, it is totally not a crime to get our much needed and much deserved break from time to time as taking care of ourselves is our top priority anyway!
If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
