Where the hell did I put that bottle of water” and “ahh my freakin head!” are probably two of the first things that you mutter to yourself as you wake up after a big night out with friends, maybe you just think it because your mouth is too dry to conjur up words just yet.. .

Whatever the occasion, the aftermath is not pretty and one that I’ve found that the older I get, the worse it becomes. (Can I get an Amen!)

Yep, i’m talking about the HANGOVER.

As a very big NON-drinker, the effects of a hangover a few and far between for me and on the rare occasions I do drink, the effects are always felt the next day. I’m sure we’ve all been on the end of the “Sorry, can’t make it today, i literally feel like I’m going to die” texts from friends who end up spending entire days in bed, or lacking the enthusiasm to do just about anything because of the dreaded hangover and its morning after effects.

I have friends who spend entire weekends in this state, after drinking Friday nights, recovering Saturdays, heading out again Saturday nights and then replaying Saturdays regrets again on the Sunday. I often get texts or questions from friends asking what they can do to cure their hangovers faster, or what can be done pre-bed to ensure they wake up fresh and ready for the weekend.

Well, unfortunately, there aren’t a great deal of quick fixes for a hangover besides well.. not drinking as much, but that is not a real expectation of anyone out having a good time. In order to understand how to FIX a hangover, we must learn WHAT causes a hangover?

1/ WHAT – Dehydration is a contributing factor to all hangovers, that’s the reason the first thing we often do is reach for a tall glass of water after waking to lubricate the inside of our desert dry mouth. Ever wondered why when you “break the seal”, you find yourself in the toilet line a lot more than before? You can than vasopressin for this, the hormone that regulates how often you need to go number 1’s. Thanks Vasopressin…

FIX – Try drinking a tall glass of water in between drinks or opting for water mixed drinks. Like lemon, lime and vodka, or lemon, water and vodka, these citric based additives will help ease the need to go number 1’s so often during the night. Ensure you are drinking lots of water the following day and add some lemon or lime to stop you having to pee so much the following day also.

2/ WHAT – Food Choices It is no secret that alcohol is toxic to your body, Regular exposure to alcohol and the damage caused to cells is linked to an increased chance of developing cancer, liver and kidney damage amongst other things. If you feel drunk that means there’s too much alcohol in your body for your liver to metabolise and you’re getting a backlog of alcohol related nasties in your system, which is another reason why your kidneys and stomach feel icky in the morning.

morning high rich breakfast

FIX – Enjoy a breakfast full of health proteins, like bacon, eggs, a protein shake (with water, not milk) and protein rich foods throughout the day, like chicken, beef, pork and other animal proteins. Also be sure to drink vitamin rich drinks like natural orange juice, or take a vitamin C supplement as these will work to “detox” your liver faster than if you hadn’t otherwise.

3/ WHAT – Your choice of alcohol The table below is an approximate for Australian serving sizes and this one is a no brainer. If you are smashing shots all night and your friends are drinking light beer or mixers, there is a good chance you are going to be feeling the bulk of the hangover the following morning. Know your limits and don’t drink to excess if you want to prevent hangovers the following morning.

FIX – The level of sugar in each drink your consume is also a contributor to not only your headache, but also an expanding waistline.

This second chart is also a list of the lowest calorie drinks available, so try sticking to the top listed items if you are wanting to watch your waist and your head this drinking season.

Share this with some of your party animal friends and give them a helping hand this coming weekend.
