While you can’t undo the damage completely, you can load up on certain foods and drinks that will help counter the effects of your junk binge and get your digestion and energy levels back on track.
YOGURT + BERRIES
Even though you may not have the appetite for it, you’ll want to eat breakfast, as it’s key for jump-starting your metabolism.
Yogurt contains beneficial lactobacillus bacteria that can help keep you regular and reduce gut inflammation triggered by sugary foods and alcohol.
If you need a subtle energy boost in the morning, sip some green tea. This brew is rich in antioxidants, which can help prevent cell damage induced by too much junk. There’s also some research showing green tea helps stabilize blood sugar levels and dulls cravings, which is important if you’ve overdone it on sweets and alcohol.
In addition to anything caffeinated, you’ll also want to sip some plain water throughout the day. Hydration is key, especially after a night of over consumption. Water will help flush out toxins, aid digestion, and fight gas-induced bloating.
