You Can Get Food Hangovers.
Posted By SkinnyMe Chocolate
Not all hangovers come from alcohol...
Have you ever woken up feeling bloated, lethargic, with a pounding headache after not having a single drop to drink?
Well, you may have experienced a food hangover.
Many people experience food hangovers when they're eating foods their bodies have a difficult time digesting. These foods are typically high fat, high salt, high sugar, high starch or all of the above.
They can be caused by intolerances to ingredients, adverse reactions or overindulgence.
The most common causes of food hangovers?
Refined carbohydrates, particularly white bread, potatoes, rice and pasta. Highfat foods and those heavy in carbohydrates are most likely to provoke symptoms.
Excess salt can heighten the problem, causing water retention, which makes bloating much worse.
Here's What You Can Do:
If you wake up suffering, there are ways to combat the symptoms. Be sure to eat foods high in fiber and fruit. This can help balance your blood sugar levels and calm down your tummy.
Want to avoid food hangovers altogether?
Whatever you're eating, try to have a salad or side of healthy vegetables. This way, you're adding in some fiber and antioxidants, which will aid in digestion.
We hope this quick tip will come in handy in the future!
