If we’re being honest, we all tend to bite off a little (or a LOT) more than we can chew and properly digest when summer BBQs roll around.
But whether we want to believe it or not, our stomachs have a limit!
"Your stomach is designed to contain about a liter, max," Dr. Travis Stork explains. "But [the] reality is, between the liquids and all the food, [when] you get past that liter, your stomach actually expands."
"And that sends those pain signals [to your brain]," he continues. "That’s why you feel terrible."
Yup, your stomach essentially becomes like a balloon that’s about to burst when you overeat, Dr. Travis says!
So, how do you recover once the damage is done? Sip on some water with peppermint or ginger in it.
"That’ll help potentially ease some of that [gastrointestinal] upset," Dr. Travis says of peppermint.
"Ginger is a great antiemetic," he continues. "It helps with nausea very naturally."
We don’t know about you, but we’re stocking up!
