New Year's Eve is famous for its celebrations, but sometimes a little too much partying can leave your body feeling not-so-celebratory in the morning. Registered dietitian Julia Zumpano says that while there isn't an actual cure for a hangover, there are a few ways your diet the next day can help you feel better sooner.
In addition to drinking more water, Zumpano says that replacing lost electrolytes by drinking vitamin enhanced water before you go to bed can help you in the morning. If you wake up feeling queasy, try eating a bland diet made up of bananas, rice, applesauce and toast.
Zumpano says getting your nutrients from natural sources can result in a quicker recovery.
"I think fluids are very important, even if you can hydrate while you're drinking. That helps to prevent feeling so poorly in the morning. So for every alcoholic drink I typically suggest having a nice at least 8-12 ounce glass of water."
She also said natural sugars like in honey or in fruit helps get alcohol out of your system quicker. Getting enough rest is also important for your body's recovery.
Of course, the best plan for your overall health is to watch your intake of alcohol so that you can avoid overindulging in the first place.
