Booze and the Body
Heavy consumption of alcohol not only affects your waistline — think of how many calories you’re drinking! Guzzling too many cocktails also causes dehydration, stimulates appetite, interferes with sleep and causes dips in blood sugar. So it’s easy to see why you might feel so lousy the morning after.
Replenish fluids by drinking plenty of water. Beverages like orange juice, coconut water, cranberry juice, tomato juice (no Bloody Marys!) or even a sports drink will help replenish lost electrolytes. Foods with high water content foods like fresh fruit and soup will also help contribute to better fluid balance.
Drank a little too much last night? Say “good morning!” to your hangover. (Hey, we warned you.) Typical symptoms include headaches, nausea, upset stomach and fatigue — all combining to varying degrees. Now you’re probably wondering: “Is there a sure way to get rid of your hangover?” Well, everyone has a theory.
