Oops…I Ate Too Much and I Feel Guilty!
Most of us have times of overindulgence, when we eat things that we know may not be the best for us but they just taste too good not to. Even if you follow the healthiest of diets, there will probably be moments when you give into unhealthy cravings or eat poorly for one reason or another. Learning to eat, as part of an alkaline diet, is a process that requires you to step back on the wagon whenever you’ve fallen off.
There are dozens of different scenarios that may cause you to overeat. The important thing is that you acknowledge your mistake, and then take steps to bring your body back to an alkaline state, and your mindset back to a place of healthy eating habits.
Let’s take a look at some of the instances in which you may found yourself eating too much, and then wishing you could take back the damage you just did:
- Binge eating due to severe dietary restrictions
- Using the holidays as an excuse to eat more than your body needs or to make unhealthy choices
- Skipping meals and then overcompensating by eating tons of calories in one sitting
- Giving in to temptation when familiar, unhealthy “comfort” foods are around
- Mindless eating out of boredom or when you’re distracted
On all of these occasions, it’s critical to remember that eating pleasurable food is okay, it’s the disconnect from intuitively knowing what and how much food our bodies need that is the issue.
Did you realize that you can absolutely enjoy pancakes every morning, burgers every day, and cheesecake every evening and still follow an alkaline diet?
Our bodies naturally desire certain types of foods, including sweet, savory, tart, and spicy foods. It’s perfectly fine to include meals in your alkaline diet that address all of these tastes, and it’s actually in your best interest to do so.
You don’t want to end up depriving yourself of what you’re body is calling for, and then pay the price later with an acidic environment in your body caused by binge eating on junk foods. It’s not good for your health to continuously turn to unhealthy meals because you can’t stand to be on a restrictive diet any longer.
Think of an alkaline diet as one that includes delicious, plant-based foods prepared in ways that are tantalizing, creative, and satisfying.
Make waffles from sprouted buckwheat flour and top with pure maple syrup. Whip up a batch of Thai soup with coconut milk and curry for lunch. Bake decadent lasagna for dinner, with fresh farmers’ market vegetables.
Learn to love your food and to listen to exactly what you body is asking for. Just know that your desire for sweets and treats, and satiating home-cooked meals can be had on an alkaline diet.
Eating for optimal health takes practice. Be patient with yourself as you learn how in incorporate new foods into your alkaline diet.
