Party Too Hard?

by Melissa Paris

Looking for tips on how to deal with a hangover? Here are some ways to deal with the misery and pain of a morning hangover.

1) Ditch the gatorade
-Sugar speeds the absorption of alcohol, so avoid sugary drinks like Gatorade (or orange juice and other juices) in the morning!
-There are 35 grams of sugar in a normal 20 oz bottle; that’s 9 teaspoons of sugar (or 135 calories from sugar alone).

Try this instead: Drink water! I can’t stress the importance of drinking water enough! The only way to get over a hangover is to let it run through your system. Fill up a large bottle of water with you and carry it with you throughout the day.

2) Can the taylor, ham egg and cheese
-It’s high in fat, cholesterol and salt, not the best recipe for a hangover.
-A normal 2 oz serving would be 180 calories, 140 grams of fat and a whooping 580 mg of salt!

Try this instead:Egg whites, avocado, whole grain. It satisfies your protein cravings without the heart burn.

3) Avoid the coffee
-Coffee narrows your blood vessels and boosts blood pressure, both things that may cause your hangover to worsen.

Try this instead:Mint Tea can help you with that feeling of nausea that drinking gives you, and help ease your digestion. Ginger and chamomile teas are also good choices.
