The day after a drunken evening: Here is what we can eat (or drink) to manage excess

Holiday meals are usually very drunk, and it is not uncommon to wake up with a hangover. To avoid spending the day in a fog, there are a number of dietary rules to adopt.

Contrary to some popular belief, alcohol does not hydrate, even if it is a liquid. It is even the reverse. If you wake up with a headache, it’s normal. It is a reaction of the brain which has not had its quantity of water, and is losing its elasticity.

Broths and herbal teas

The first reflex to adopt is to drink water, vegetable broths or herbal teas all day. It is the best way to hydrate the body and flush out toxins produced by heavy alcohol consumption.

No high fat foods

Then, it is essential to adopt a diet that will allow you to preserve the liver, an organ tested by a drunken evening. Indeed, very much in demand for its role of filter, it needs rest to regenerate. Above all, we totally zap fat. These last a lot of work on the liver, so haro on cheese, butter, pastries, fried foods, etc.

Lemon, green tea, vegetables

We can bet on a dried lemon diluted in a glass of lukewarm water, which will increase the production of bile. This will eliminate the waste produced by alcohol. Then continue with green tea, rich in antioxidants and moisturizer.

When hungry, oatmeal in milk or a slice of sourdough bread, without butter will do the trick. But we obviously avoid the croissant or pain au chocolat! At lunch and dinner, we force on the vegetables, either whole, in soup or broth. Leeks, zucchini, celery, turnips are filled with fiber and water. Add grilled fish or chicken whites. As for the fruit, we focus on citrus fruits such as orange or grapefruit.

These foods help ward off fatigue thanks to their richness in vitamin C. You can also choose kiwis or persimmons. All of these principles will result in continuous hydration throughout the day. And consequently regenerate the liver, while erasing the traces of the day before.
