You maybe drank a little too much alcohol yesterday. Here are some tips how to fast-track hangover recovery.
Compensate for the effect alcohol has on your body thermometer. In cold conditions, your hung-over body can lose heat more quickly than normally – while in hot temperatures your body might not release enough heat.
Don’t sweat it out
Forcing yourself to train while carrying bin-liners or even going to the sauna to ‘sweat it out’ can have drastic consequences. You’ll just put pressure on your already dehydrated system.
Calculate restart time
If you’re can recall how many drinks you had, this may help to calculate time for the recovery. Alcohol is metabolised at the rate of approximately one drink an hour.
The liver will have to work extra hard to create energy-boosting glycogen while processing alcohol. Restore your blood sugar levels with simple carbohydrates and continue to raise hydration levels with water, fruit drinks and milk thistle which help to metabolise alcohol.
