But hunger cues — or, in this case, fullness cues — aren't solely physical. Foods high in sugar might be associated with impaired cognitive function. Sometimes your eyes are bigger than your stomach. Sometimes your cravings get the best of you and two cookies turns into a whole lot more. Overeating happens, and even though it might feel satiating in the moment, taking in an excess amount of food can do some real damage to your insides, Derocha explained.
For one, eating too much can cause a spike in your blood sugar levels because your body begins to overcompensate and produce more insulin than usual to keep blood sugar levels at a healthy range. As a result, you might experience headaches, increased thirst, fatigue, or lethargy, Derocha said. It's also possible that your body will store the excess blood sugar and calories, leading to weight gain.
In terms of your actual stomach, Glatter told INSIDER that when you overeat, your digestive organ literally swells, causing bloat, discomfort, even nausea and, in some cases, acid reflux. What's more, when food a long time to break down, your sleep patterns, as well as your brain functionality, can become distorted, too, Derocha added. Be sure to drink water. First things first, if you do eat too much, remember to be gentle with yourself not just physically, but also mentally, too.
Move forward and, if you want, incorporate healthy, nutrient-dense foods into your next meal. Once you've come to terms with the fact that you've overeaten, and your body is probably paying the price, Derocha said your first order of business should be to drink the recommended six to eight glasses of water per day to keep hydrated, help the body digest, and also to help detox your system from the excessive sodium intake. However, rigorous exercise probably isn't the best idea too soon after you've cleared your plate. Instead, Glatter suggested going for a light walk or practicing yoga might help you feel better and aid in digestion.
