The Greasy Food Fix.
Popular hangover remedy.

A good meal can actual benifit the downsides of having some drinks, particularly if you have it WHILE you are drinking. But as far as the next morning, well there are some signs that a little food can help the potential hangover. It just centers around what exactly you have.

Let's cut to the chase, the news you want to remember is this - grease isn't one of the things you want the morning after.

Contrary to popular belief, grease cannot absorb alcohol. Let's repeat that (especially if you are still seeing double the next morning.) Grease cannot absorb alcohol in your body or anywhere else. It's an old wives tale.

If you eat foods with a lot of fat BEFORE drinking, the oils can coat your stomach lining and slow down the absorption of alcohol. Slow down, not stop. So this approach can help prevent the severity of a hangover.

Unfortunately, eating greasy food the morning after drinking will probably only add to the gastrointestinal problem you might have by irritating the stomach and intestines even more. And let's not forget the long list of heart-heath downsides of eating anything greasy.

So what foods may actually help? Here's a list of natural foods for hangovers.

PROS

Sometimes a little comfort food inside you is what will make you feel emotionally more comfortable.

CONS

Emotionally comfortable has nothing to do with controlling the physical pain. And the side effects of the amount of fat you intake will last beyond what a few hours of sleep could handle anyway.

Medical experts agree that there is no strictly "safe" level of alcohol consumption. Find out more facts about alcohol use and heath here.
