Tips to Fight Fatigue in Vacaville CA

  1. Eat protein - After you have ingested too much alcohol, fat, or sugar, your body's first instinct is to repair itself from the damage. For the body to do its job properly, you need to supply it with some healthy protein. Alcohol is a major factor that's causing the body's ability to synthesize protein to slow down. Consuming some smaller, healthy meals can be helpful after you've endured a day of binge eating and drinking. If possible, go for sources of lean protein such as baked fish, ground turkey, and egg whites to restore your body to its normal state.


    2. Drink lots of water - Drinking some plain, simple water is the best way to make yourself feel better and bring back the normal function of the body. This will help flush out the excess supply of sugar in your digestive system and can be ideal for anyone who's gone overboard in drinking alcohol. In fact, dehydration is the reason why you feel so awful after enduring a night of heavy drinking. This is why a simple hydration will do the trick for you. Alex Tam of Absolute Family Chiropractic explains to make sure to chug as much water as you can before going to bed to ensure that you'll wake up without some of the nasty effects of a hangover.


    3. Drink sprite - This may not seem like a healthy drink at all but sipping on Sprite if you have a hangover can actually be helpful. A study has suggested this since it shows that Sprite can speedup the hangover process in the body by converting alcohol into a chemical that makes you feel awful and then return you back to normal in a fast manner. It won't exactly cure a hangover, but it could help you get through one much faster.


    4. Sip on bouillon - This is a winning chicken soup that your mom usually prepares for you when you are sick, and it could even go handy if you're trying to cure a hangover. The broth is perfect for restoring the salt and potassium in your body. Bland foods like crackers can be a perfect pair for your soup and in calming your stomach.


    5. Go for a walk - There's no better way to detox your body than exercising. Sweating will flush out the toxins, pump endorphins to make you feel better, and keep the circulation moving to make your natural lymphatic system function properly. If you are in no mood for an intense workout, then a simple brisk walk will do the trick. Another benefit of walking is that it can even boost your metabolism which will help in shredding off those excess calories from your body.


    6. Take a nap - Napping is healthy and can bring about several benefits to your body, not to mention your hangover. If you nap after you binge eat or drink, toxins from your brain and body will be flushed out. There's a study which shows that the body works differently at a cellular level when it sleeps or when it's awake. The essential healing only happens when sleeping. Your body will do the important work of repairing itself when it's not on a busy state such as doing several stuffs at once. So, catch a shuteye when you get the chance to allow your body to work on stuff that matters.

It's important to keep these tips ready for you whenever the holidays are approaching. If possible, have some control over your eating and drinking to steer clear from its effects to your body. There's no need to bail on the occasion just as long as you know what to do and you have total control over the situation.
