Many people crave a burger and fries or fried eggs and bacon after a night out of heavy drinking. Next time you have a hangover, you can rejoice — there is some scientific evidence to suggest that eating greasy fast food after indulging in a little too much alcohol doesn’t just taste amazing — it can also help cure your hangover. Here’s what you need to know to justify your guilty pleasure.
How Fast Food Can Help
Foods like bacon, eggs, and burgers tasting amazing after a night of drinking has nothing to do with the fat content. Instead, it lies in cysteine, which is an amino acid found in various meats that works to accelerate the breakdown of the alcohol in your body. You can also receive a healthy boost of cysteine by snacking on some oats or yogurt.
Why You May Want to Make It a Combo
Since carbohydrates help raise your blood sugar, you may not want to skip the side of fries or toast with your post-drinking meal. Blood sugar levels tend to drop rapidly when you’re hungover, but carbohydrates can help restore them to normal. Soda can also combat hangover symptoms like headaches and nausea. The fizzy beverages accelerate the natural breakdown of alcohol dehydrogenase — ADH — in the body, which leads to the undesirable symptoms.
