What do you learn after treating 11,000 train wrecks? How to avoid them. We talked to Dr. Jason Burke of Hangover Heaven (read about his treatments here) about the best ways to stay hangover free.
- Don’t go to sleep.
At least not right away. “When you pass out, your organs slow down,” Burke explains. “Which means they aren’t metabolizing as much alcohol.” The more toxins you get rid of at night, the better you’ll feel in the morning. (So drunken late-night sex? Great on multiple levels.)
- Yes, of course, eat something, just not all carbs.
“A huge serving of fries isn’t really soaking up booze,” he says, “because alcohol is also a carb.” Scarf down protein and veggies instead.
