5 Healthy Ways to Post-Holiday Detox
So the holidays are almost over and you're probably feeling like the rest of Americans right now: bloated, tired and a little heavier than usual. Instead of going on a crash diet or thinking that you have to go to the gym for hours on end to start feeling like your pre-holiday self, follow these five tips to post-holiday detox in a healthy way!
1. Break the sugar and salt habit. If you feel especially bloated, cutting out the extra sugar, refined carbs and salt you've been having at holiday gatherings is the first step to getting back to your usual self. Do this for at least three days to get back on track and give your system time to reset.
2. Load up on veggies. Detoxing is all about getting the bad out and the good back in.

Get a variety of produce to ensure that you're getting all those vitamins and minerals you probably skimped on over holiday break.
