What are the best foods are to help offset having eaten too much candy with high fructose in it. Apple cider vinegar? Grapefruit? Help before it all turns to fat!
Think about this logically for a second. You have eaten too much candy which translates into too many calories. Why would consuming even more calories make you lose the ones you have already ingested, or somehow neutralize them? You can’t offset overconsumption with more consumption; you can only change that behavior. You can’t somehow neutralize high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
Not to worry - we have all done this, me included, and it isn’t the end of the world. Since you realize eating too much candy with HFCS isn’t healthy and causes weight gain, instead, reach for a healthy alternative. A little dark chocolate, small amounts of dried fruit or better yet, fresh fruit should satisfy your cravings. Also journal your feelings before you reach for something sweet. What drove your desire? Were you really hungry? Were you bored? Were you revisiting a bad time in your past? Were you thirsty? Try waiting 30 minutes before giving into your craving and see if it goes away. Distract yourself by taking a walk or call a friend. If that doesn’t’ work then maybe you really are hungry. If that’s the case, choose whole unprocessed fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth. In the future, try getting a variety of berries and freeze these. When the sweet tooth attacks, put those frozen berries in a glass of soda water instead of ice. You will have a sweet, low calorie snack that fills you up, hydrates you and gives you a boost of healthy nutrition!
