9 Digestive Solutions for the Holidays

It’s no secret that the holidays can derail our best diet efforts. When faced with an endless array of seasonal favorites, such as stuffing, pumpkin pie, peppermint bark, honey ham, potato pancakes, apple cider and eggnog, even the healthiest diners among us may find their resolve crumbling faster than Aunt Betty’s homemade Christmas cookies.

Sadly, that end-of-year weight gain is often accompanied by another equally unpleasant side effect: digestive issues. Difficult-to-digest foods during the holidays can cause a host of painful conditions, including acid reflux, heartburn, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and general stomach discomfort. These issues may be further exacerbated for those with food intolerances or inflammatory bowel disease.

Protecting your stomach during the holidays

Want to stay ahead of stomach upset this holiday season? Can’t say we blame you! Check out these tips to help protect your belly from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day:

  • Adhere to a healthy, balanced diet that includes ample fiber
  • Avoid foods known to trigger acid reflux and heartburn (e.g., caffeinated beverages, citrus, tomatoes, chocolate)
  • Chew food properly to signal digestion
  • Eat small snacks or meals every few hours to regulate blood sugar and prevent “hangry” holiday binges
  • Avoid overeating, which can cause discomfort and pain in the digestive tract
  • Take probiotics (a.k.a. friendly bacteria) regularly to help support normal digestion
  • Take a digestive enzyme, such as Beano® Food Enzyme, before eating to help your body break down foods without accompanying bloating, gas and stomach discomfort
  • Supplement with stomach comfort extract, which does exactly as its name implies
  • Take chamomile flower supplements to promote digestive health
  • Reduce/manage stress, which can cause or aggravate digestive issues
  • Get plenty of exercise (holiday shopping and caroling totally count!)
