Has your weekend been all about Eid brunches and dinners, piling on the meaty goodness and having one too many servings of meethi seviyan? While over indulging over the Eid holidays is to be expected, it can usually get you feeling like a bloated, tired, hungry and guilty mess.

Drink Lemon Water or Green Tea
Start your day with a huge cup of lemon water or green tea. This brew is rich in antioxidants and can help stabilize blood sugar levels and dull cravings. In fact, just make lemon your best friend for the week as it will help get most of those heavy, fatty foods out of your system.
Have a Protein Heavy Breakfast

Go For a Hardcore Work Out
