Fried or Fatty Foods
Although eating fried or fatty foods the morning after will probably only irritate a drinker's stomach more, eating them before drinking can actually help alleviate potential symptoms before they're a problem. eating anything fatty before you drink helps prevent a hangover, fatty food especially stick to the stomach lining better and slow the alcohol ingestion into the blood stream, this may make getting drunk take longer but it also gives the body more time to handle the toxic effects of the alcohol which helps to avoid a hang over too.
The fatty foods don't block the alcohol it just acts as a buffer which allows the body to keep up with the metabolism of alcohol and simultaneously deal with the toxins created as a bi-product. Many people make the mistake of thinking they need to drink more alcohol because they ate fatty foods and don't "feel" anything right away (and their friends who have empty stomachs do!).
This is a big mistake because you will end up TOO drunk and your body will become overwhelmed with alcohol metabolism/toxins it can't fight fast enough and this will cancel out the benefits of eating the fatty foods in the first place. Patience is a virtue! Give it more time, you will get just as drunk, no need to over do it!
a Mediterranean folk tactic is to take a spoonful of olive oil before drinking alcohol as a hangover preventative measure because it works! (sort of like pepto bismol coats the stomach so does this)
Drinking Gatorade, or any electrolyte fortified sports drink, smoothie, or fruit drink (fresh real fruit is best) replenishes the robbed electrolytes that went out when you kept having to go to the bathroom! Don't drink too much WHILE your drinking, however as sport drinks contain a lot of salt (what makes the electrolytes) and you can dehyrate yourself! This is best drank AFTER you drink the next morning. Water, however should be consumed before, during, and after.
Eating eggs the morning after gives you energy like any other food, which is the greatest benefit, but eggs also contain large amounts of cysteine the substance that breaks down the toxin (remember?) acetaldehyde in the liver's easily depleted glutathione. Therefore, eggs can potentially help mop up the left-over toxins and assist the body to compensate faster.
Bananas provide lost electrolytes, but it also replenishes the potassium lost to alcohol's diuretic effect. Other potassium-rich foods such as kiwi fruit or sports drinks work just as well.
Drinking water is the most important thing you can do for your hang over, especially if you drink it while you drink. This combats dehydration, but also helps dilute the left over chemicals left over from the alcohol and liver. Its a good idea to drink a glass of water with salt and sugar mixed in it as this replaces the lost sodium andglycogen. Sports drinks can achieve the same effect but drinking plain water and sports drinks is recommended.
It is also recommended that while you drink you drink a full glass of water for every glass or 3 shots of alcohol you drink. This is a good preventive measure that works wonders. This slows down drinking, and gives your body more time to deal with the alcohol. The body only processes 3/4 of an ounce of alcohol per hour any more than that becomes toxic and generally will cause hangover symptoms the next day, or induce vomiting while drinking.
Fructose or fruit sugar in fruit juice helps to naturally increase the body's energy. Studies have proven that it also speeds up how fast the body gets rid of toxins. Fruit juice is also a good idea the morning after because it is high in Vitamins and supplements that were depleted the night before because of alcohol's diuretic effect. Taking vitamin B and C are best but I recommend you take a high potency multivitamin to replenish your supply holistically.
