Double Down on Fiber
You probably weren't feasting on fruits and vegetables, which means your regularity took a hit. Indulging in foods you wouldn't normally eat can make your stomach temperamental, says Lori Zanini RD, spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the founder of Lori Zanini Nutrition in Manhattan Beach, California. Fiber can fix both. "You get the gut back on track and you feel better immediately," Zanini says. It'll also help you feel more satisfied after eating. Fill your post-vacation meals and snacks with high-fiber picks like beans and lentils, vegetables like broccoli and Brussels sprouts, fruits like berries and pears, and whole grains.
