I feel bloated like a pig after Thanksgiving meal how do I cure it?

bloated-belly-thanksgivingQuestion of the Week:
Coach, I feel like a bloated pig after stuffing my face all Thanksgiving weekend.

I think I ate over 5,000 calories not counting the three desserts. Also a few beers and nachos later at the pub. What do I do to get back on track? Jimmy C.

Great question brother, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend.

Check out these tips to help you feel better by the end of the day.


goruck-girlGo out on a walk or ruck hike.

Just grab your ruck with a few pounds and extra water and go hike.

This will not only help you clear your head and get your blood flowing but also you will want to drink more water.

Plus you know you want to try out that new GORUCK pack that you just bought early for your own Christmas present.


hot-yogaHot yoga. If you are turning up your nose on the “yoga” word think twice.

You can go slow and sit in the back of the room and go at your own pace.

Just moving your body in a hot room will get your circulation going and sweating out all of that excess salt you ingested.

The deep breathing side of yoga is the added bonus as you will be old air for new air and your lungs and blood cells will love it.

If you dont have access to hot yoga then just sit in a tub of hot water. Throw in a cup of epsom salts and relax for 20 minutes.


After the hot water session step into the cold water shower. This will recharge your immune system and reduce inflammation. Stay in the cold shower for 2 to 3 minutes. You can sit back in the hot tub for another session if you feel like it.

If you have an outdoor shower or pool to jump in – even better.


After a day of over eating and excess salt it is time to detox. Drink as much water as you can. I try to drink a half gallon or more a day. But this depends on how hot it is and how much I sweat. I may add a small amount of electrolyte or a squeeze of lemon. You will need to drink more water after the hot tub so drink and cleanse.


green-tea-onnitI know you want to go and drink a beer right now after all that rucking and hot yoga.
But hold off there honcho and lets put something good in our body like Matcha green tea.

Matcha green tea has anti-oxidants and supports healthy weight loss.

It delivers caffeine in a different way so that you are less jittery and way more calm.


If you went a little too far on Thanksgiving and holidays – it is not too late to get control back and work hard to stay healthy.
