If you’ve ever gone on a food binge, you’re probably aware that it’s one of those things that feels excellent in the moment, but leaves you feeling nasty the next day. If alcohol is involved, sometimes you can expect a hangover. If it’s a cheat day gone wrong, then you can expect that you’ve set back your progress on that diet plan. However, what’s done is done, and you can’t un-eat all that food. You can only move forward. What should you put in your body on the road to recovery? Well, here are a few things to start with.
Water is life. First and foremost, you’re going to want a glass or two of it in the morning after a rough night. This is because your body actually dries out while you sleep (especially if you snore) and also because you’re going to need to rehydrate, especially if you’ve been drinking a lot. Water will improve the function of your digestive organs- your kidneys, liver, and intestines will all work much more smoothly to filter out and cut down on the toxins in your body. You can quite literally flush yourself out and be on the road to recovery.
7. Green Tea
Another beverage to consider drinking is green tea. In the short term, it can give you a boost of energy and provide some hydration. However, it also helps protect your body from certain heart and liver diseases- things typically encouraged by alcohol. Don’t think of green tea as something that cancels out alcohol, but it will definitely help you recover after a long night out, and improve your health overall. It can help to regulate your blood sugar and give a boost to your metabolism, for instance, which could be just what you need to get on with your day.
