Even if you try to limit your alcohol intake during normal weeks, some weeks are just not normal. If your friend’s bachelorette party spans an entire week on the beaches of Mexico, you’re bound to have a few more rum-filled coconuts than you intended to. If your friend wants everyone to go to Las Vegas for her 40th birthday, you know you’ll be popping champagne bottles beginning at breakfast and going late into the night. Some weekends (and full weeks) call for a little more, um, liquid celebration than others. They are a blast, but they leave you feeling lethargic, grimy, depleted of energy and unhealthy. In addition to avoiding alcohol for a while, you can also try some food and beverages that can speed up your detoxification process and help you feel a little less guilty about all those rounds of shots. Here are foods you should eat after a weekend of binge drinking.
Have you ever noticed that your joints hurt after a weekend of binge drinking, making it difficult to exercise? Have you witnessed your skin become puffy after lots of booze? That’s because alcohol is inflammatory. Have some anti-inflammatory tomatoes to help your system calm down.
