How to Cure a Sugar Hangover

Halloween Candy

Yesterday was Halloween...the one day of the year when kids go door-to-door dressed up in costumes, asking their neighbors for treats. I just could not bring myself to give out candy...and I definitely didn't eat any...but I know that's not the case for everyone. As one Facebook fan said, "Halloween isn't Halloween without candy!"

I'd be willing to bet that those of you who ate quite a bit of candy last night are feeling the effects this morning. You probably feel fatigued, your heart might be racing, your mind spinning, your stomach hurting, and you can feel a headache coming on.

So how do you get rid of this "sugar hangover"?

Drink water. Keeping your body hydrated will help flush your body of toxins and aid in recovery, ultimately making you feel better.

Take a walk. Get your blood flowing with a little exercise and some fresh air. If you usually work out, don't skip it...exercising will actually make you feel more energized, rather than more tired.

Eat breakfast. Don't skip breakfast in an attempt to make up for last night's indulgence. Make sure your breakfast includes some healthy protein (as it always should). With all that sugar you ate, you need to make sure your body has the protein it needs to remain balanced.

Avoid starchy foods. When dealing with a "sugar hangover," the last thing you want to eat is more foods that are going to quickly turn to sugar in your body. There's no need to avoid carbs altogether, but make sure you're making smart choices (think fresh vegetables).

There's nothing wrong with enjoying a piece of candy now and then. Just try not to overdo it!
