It's true, Paleo friends, I drank too much wine last night. I've stopped taking Tylenol because of concerns about liver damage, and I'm trying to stick with LC Paleo for weight-loss, so I'm interested to know if any of you have hangover cures (yes, I'm drinking water) or awesome hangover snacks? I'm craving pizza something fierce. And cheeseburgers. And chocolate croissants.
Unfortunately, as a musician I am WELL qualified to answer hangover questions!
Short ribs braised in red wine! With a gravy high in gelatin! Unfortunately, that takes about 4-5 hours to put together, so hopefully you have some leftover...
Bacon and eggs!
HOT HOT soak in the tub with Epsom salt, then a brisk cold shower.
10,000 B.C. (the remake) or an equally horrible "caveman" movie to laugh at.
In the extreme case (too many Patron shots?) that none of the above works...Sleep it off and chalk the day up to a loss.
Same thing happened to me on Saturday morning, so I went for a 30 minute run. Yeah, the run sucked and I felt like ass during it, but afterwards I felt 10 feet tall and bulletproof.
Good idea to avoid Tylenol, alcohol and Tylenol are a 1-2 punch to your liver. I would drink plenty of green tea, take a long slow run or walk, drink more water and a take a very long shower.
Three things that I find helpful are:
Canned fish (counter-intuitive, but true)
Coconut Water (the kind without sugar and stuff added)-
"Hair of the dog that bit you" - yes, a little bit of whatever gave you the hangover
My foolproof hanging prevention (and cure) is as follows - taken while ingesting, before bed, or upon waking - though prior to sleep is ideal:
• something fatty (brisket or fage...brisket preferred)
• something high in B vites (I use Jigsaw Active B complex as I don't eat most organ meats...though I know I should eat them)
• electrolytes - a little calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium
250 mg potassium chloride or potassium gluconate
250 mg magnesium (I use jigsaw time released magnesium as I can't tolerate any mag citrate/aspartate/glycinate etc)
125-250 mg calcium citrate if I ate brisket instead of fage
sodium - a pinch only if there was no salt added to the meat, or if i used fage instead of meat
• 8 or so oz water
• motrin if sleep deprivation is expected, I'll use it to prevent the sleep deprivation headache. will also use in cases of "red wine headache" which can unfortunately occur for me with specific red wines at even lower intake levels (ie 2 oz)
ETA: not sure why some of the text is showing up in a brownish-red on my monitor. thoughts?
I hate to be "that girl," but weed really does work some medicinal miracles, especially the morning after a long night out ;)
A while back, I read that taking a multivitamin prior to passing out (maybe keep it on your bedside table before you head out the door for shenanigans?) helps to replenish your body from whatever it looses during drinking (I'm no scientist; I can't get specific) and keeps your body/head from hating you the next morning. I have been doing this since because I find that it really works. I take a good multivitamin and drink a good amount of water with it and feel pretty stellar the next morning!
If you are craving something carby or greasy try to come as close to it as possible without blowing it. Often your body is just telling you what it needs. Have a cheeseburger without the bun, see if that helps.
