When you have an important event or event ahead of you, be it a first date, a wedding, a meeting with a new employer, a public speaking, etc., you need to carefully consider your diet and exclude foods that can spoil your image and mood, advises Martha Stewart.
Bloating, nausea, drowsiness, heartburn are not the best companions of your important day. Let's choose what you can eat, and what is better to refuse.
If you do not plan to become a victim of insulin stroke, get away from the tasty cake and get better fruit (although bananas and grapes should also be avoided). Optimally choose citrus fruits, berries, and kiwi for a sweet snack - they have the least amount of fruit sugar. And cookies and cakes, even if you are not afraid of the figure, set aside until the next time.
Mmm, what a delicious cheese platter, now we are her ... Stop! As attractive as cheese looks, it is difficult to digest, so you risk becoming an unhappy owner of such “gifts” as nausea, bloating and weakness.
A cup of freshly brewed coffee in the mornings is not averse to drinking even those who are difficult to call coffee lovers. Nevertheless, if an important day awaits you in front of you, give up your morning coffee - the drink will increase anxiety and anxiety. Either drink a small cup or brew herbal tea.
What event is complete without a glass of champagne? And even better - two glasses ... And yet, if you are not just an invited guest who can get lost in the crowd and at any moment go to the ladies' room, avoid carbonated drinks, sparkling wines and beer. Champagne is also one of them. All this causes belching and bloating. Drink water, juices, tea.
5. Spices and spices
Save the spicy for another day. Eating spicy foods can lead to excess acid production in the stomach. The result is severe heartburn and bad breath. And this is not at all what you would like, for example, on a first date or your own wedding, and it will not be useful for an interview either.
Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, as well as most other types of cabbage, are a great choice, but for any other occasion. All of these vegetables are high in fiber and cause serious bloating and gas. Of course, they can be boiled or steamed, but still, it’s better to last a day without such food.
7. Fried food
Instead of falling asleep on the go after eating fatty and fried foods, choose a salad with vegetable oil dressing to maintain energy levels. Avocados, coconut and olive oils are safe products that help maintain a stable level of glucose in the blood, and hence the level of energy.
8. Fast carbs
Bread, crackers, chips, dried fruit - all this is tasty, but contains a huge amount of carbohydrates, which lead to the process of fermentation in the intestines. To stay well fed and not to demonstrate a bloated belly at an important event, have breakfast, rice, quinoa or buckwheat.
