Does the hunger sound like a recognizable scenario after an evening of drinking? You drink a few drinks too much and on arrival you devour everything you find in the fridge. A few points of leftover pizza, a bowl of cold pasta or just some Nutella spoons - straight from the pot. Everything to satisfy that uncontrollable hunger. Actually I should drink more water. After this you go to bed with a reassured stomach, to wake up again the next morning with an uneasy feeling of hunger. Did not you have eaten the whole fridge a few hours ago? Tap water is not healthy anymore, therefore filter.
The reason for that hunger is the following:
Alcohol affects your blood sugar level, so you can feel that after a few drinks you are hungry when this is not the case. Because your blood sugar undergoes a temporary dip due to alcohol, your body tries to restore it in the following hours. This fluctuation in your glucose can cause a hungry feeling. In addition, dehydration plays a role. Alcohol works diuretic, so you have to urinate more when you drink (aha!). If you do not supplement your reserves below, you will suffer from the well-known disadvantage. Some people easily confuse thirst with hunger, making them eat more to get rid of this thirsty feeling.
Of course, this only has the opposite effect. Especially a combination of these causes gives you that urge to put everything in your mouth at your fingertips. If you do not tackle the main problem, you will continue to feel that hunger (which is very likely to be thirsty). At the same time your body works very hard to break down the alcohol, so your body needs more energy than normal. Bad sleep, for example due to alcohol, naturally also affects your hunger the next day. What kind of water to drink.
The best thing you can do when you come home from a night out - if you still do not know - is simply to drink enough water. Eat a hearty breakfast the next morning with good nutrients such as vitamin B12, thiamine and folic acid. The alcohol makes it difficult for your body to absorb this, so make it easy for your body to choose food that contains a lot of it, such as eggs, cheese, legumes and nuts. Sufficient food and drink after you have drunk (too much) can significantly reduce the risk of having a hangover.
