Whether you knock back a few (or 12) or partake in some other form of puffery, no judgments. Either way you'll need something to cure the oncoming sh*t feeling the next day.
Originally, I was lead to believe (by some know-it-all at a kegger) that the best way to prevent a hangover is to scarf down foods containing complex carbs. He said it helps absorb the alcohol. Apparently Doogie was a bit off. The folks at WebMD say that complex carbs really help by speeding up the metabolism of all the beer and shots (of Jäger) in your body. The article also goes on to suggest some boring CCs to ingest (bran cereal, whole wheat bread sandwich, multigrain crackers, etc.)
True there’s nothing wrong with those sensible choices. I just feel it kills one of the biggest reasons you decided to pollute your body in the first place. The way I see it, it’s similar to breathing. You don’t breath half the time. It’s something you’re 100% committed to. Same thing goes for a night of binge drinking. If you’re in, you’re in for the long haul (including the crap food feast at 2:22am.) Here are some of the nutritious and delicious delicacies you'll find in my belly after a night of beer binging.
