Kung ikaw o ang iyong kaibigan ay kagagaling lamang sa breakup, narito ang ilan sa tips ng mga nutritionist upang makabangon sa malusog at tamang pamamaraan.
1. Hinay lang sa pag-inom ng alak
“Alcohol is a depressant,” ayon kay Lisa Hayim, registered dietitian at founder ng The WellNecessities. “It slows down the central nervous system and alters your perception and emotions. It also lowers your inhibition and ability to metabolize food properly, which could lead to late night binges and weight gain.”
2. Mag-aral ng pagluluto
Mas maganda ito kumpara sa paglalaan ng oras sa maling lalaki, ‘di ba? Amen to that!
“To eat healthier, start in the kitchen!” ayon kay Rebecca Lewis, RD ng HelloFresh. “This is your time to play and be creative! Find a recipe or ingredient that is appealing to you, and approach it with a sense of adventure and a positive, can-do attitude.”
3. Pagtuunan ang heart-healthy foods
“Make your broken heart stronger by consuming plenty of healthy fats like nuts, avocados, and heart-healthy oils,” payo ni Sarah-Jane Bedwell, RD, LDN, isang Nashville-based nutritionist at author ng Schedule Me Skinny: Plan to Lose Weight and Keep it Off in Just 30 Minutes a Week. “Try canola oil, which is great for making a veggie-rich stir-fry!” O kaya naman ay coconut oil.
4. Magpapak ng pistachios
Iwasan ang oysters at chili peppers. At iba pang aphrodisiac food. Sa halip, kumain ng pistachios. “That movement of shelling the pistachios is similar to popping bubble wrap or squeezing a stress ball. It will help you to get out extra aggression and will ultimately help you to relax,” ayon sa The Nutrition Twins na sina Lyssie Lakatos, RDN, CDN, CFT at Tammy Lakatos Shames, RDN, CDN, CFT, mga author ng The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure. “Plus, pistachios are a great source of fiber and protein to help to keep you satisfied, while their antioxidants will help to keep you healthy after your immunity has taken a hit from the stress of a breakup. You can munch on 30 of them for just 100 calories.”
5. Uminom ng tsaa
Itinuturing itong slimming chicken noodle soup para sa mga brokenhearted. “After a stressful breakup, we all need a little R&R,” ayon sa The Nutrition Twins. “Tea is warm and soothing—and if you drink black, green or oolong tea, they all contain an amino acid called theanine that brings on a mental calmness yet alertness.”
6. Magpunta sa gym
“Upping your cardio isn’t just great for your physical body, but for your mentality!” ayon kay Hayim. “When we workout and break a sweat, our body starts to release endorphins, which are the feel-good hormones. These endorphins make us feel high—on top of the world—and help to make us feel capable of being alone.” At ang pagkawala ng sobrang calories sa katawan ay hindi naman nakakasakit.
7. Maglakad-lakad mag-isa
Maaaring mabigla ka at iyong katawan sa pag-gym matapos ang breakup, ngunit maaari ka ring maglakad-lakad hanggang sa maaari ka nang magtungo sa gym.
“Just get out and walk! The sun, the air will make you feel better and keep you fit,” ayon sa celebrity nutritionist na si Lisa DeFazio, MS, RDN.
8. Ugaliing malinis at maayos ang kama
Kung nasanay kang magising na may cardboard pizza box, tatlong remote controls, at may cell phone sa iyong kama, oras na para maglinis at panatilihing maayos ang tulugan! “It may seem silly, but good bed hygiene can help you stave off the weight gain. Having good rituals, such as making the bed, using scented candles, and turning off your phone can set you up for success,” ayon kay Hayim.
9. Pagtuunan ang fiber
Masakit at nakalulungkot ang breakup. Ngunit hindi nakatutulong ang doublewhiskeycokenoice, rom coms, at self-pity parties upang maibsan ang sakit na nararamdaman. “Whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, and oats—as well as beans of all types — are two great sources!” ani Bedwell.
10. Kumain sa tamang oras
“People will often over or undereat when they are sad and stressed, both of which can lead to weight gain. When we undereat, our body goes into ‘starvation mode’ and begins to hang on to the calories you eat in efforts to keep you alive,” paliwanag ni Hayim. “But when we overeat, our body can’t use all of the fuel and ends up storing it as fat.”
