FOODS TO AVOID AFTER TOO MUCH ALCOHOL (YOUR BODY WILL THANK YOU)

When you drink, you may tend to get extra hungry no matter what time of night or day it is. It’s our natural instinct to feel that way. Some foods are better left avoided when you have too much alcohol in your body though. For example, chocolate should be avoided because the fat, caffeine, and cocoa in chocolate join forces and agitate the same gastro issues also triggered by other acidic foods. It may be yummy, but it is best eaten on a not alcohol filled stomach. Alcohol loosens up the muscles that keep your food and digestive juices down, so eating marinara pizza that has acidic tomatoes in the marinara sauce can provoke acid reflux, heartburn, or GERD. It’s even worse to eat late at night right before you lie down, because gravity stops keeping your food down, and you can get sick from this. You can however eat a white pizza if it’s not too greasy. Just remember that too much fat will aggravate your stomach, especially when you have a ton of alcohol in it already.  

 Many people around the world have a liking to candy. It’s yummy and fun to eat, but eating this while having too much alcohol in your stomach isn’t always the best idea because super sweet foods will only make you want to drink even more alcohol. Also, sweets have so many empty calories. Homemade food is just awesome, but making a quesadilla while intoxicated is not so great. It’s not good to operate under the influence. Maybe order take-out instead. You’ll eat what you like, and be safe in the comfort of your own home. It’s a win-win. If you don’t want to end up super dehydrated after a night of drinking, then it is best to avoid fries because fried food contains lots of salt that can further dehydrate you, and make you feel nauseous, among many other bad feelings. Try eating some lovely fruit, but also remember to drink in moderation.
