Holiday tips from a gastroenterologist
Yes, there is: definitely eat fish, as well as lots of vegetables and fruits. The fish is not only good fried, but also without a coat, steamed with a light sauce, spinach, and other vegetables. Turkey is also a traditional Christmas food. It is recommended that not only potatoes come to mind as a side dish, but also vegetables, dried fruits, and compotes. Sauerkraut is also healthy, but dishes made from it are not necessarily light, so eat it in moderation. The festive meal should also be regular and not a constant snack. It is important to drink the right amount of fluids and to be physically active, at least in the form of walking.
What should we do if we overdo it?
According to Professor Banai, self-awareness and moderation are also important during the holidays. We try to avoid overeating, but if it does happen, the easiest way to get over the unpleasant condition is through exercise, temporary fasting or diet. Drink plenty of fluids, fruit juice, or herbal teas! Fennel, camomile or green tea are especially helpful for digestion. Subjective complaints can also be alleviated with medicinal water (e.g. Parádi, Salvus).
What should we do in case of a hangover?
Of course, it is obvious that the consumption of alcoholic beverages should also be done in moderation, so we can avoid a hangover. If that didn't work out. the most important thing is the intake of plenty of fluids and minerals. We recommend sweet, salty tea, lemon mineral water, sauerkraut juice or freshly squeezed fruit juice.
