The Health Risks of Just One Hangover After Binge Drinking

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 4 ways to cure your hangover faster after binge drinking, so you can get back to Living Lean.

I’ll also talk about the negative effect that alcohol, binge drinking, and hangovers has on your journey to Live Lean and some tips on how to increase your recovery to cure that nasty hangover.

It’s no secret that alcohol is not the best use of your calorie requirements.

But, since I’m always teaching you how to make Living Lean a balanced lifestyle, I’m sure we can fit in the occasional glass of red wine for you.

#1 Reason You Should Have A Glass Of Red Wine

The real issue with alcohol is the binge drinking, and then the hangovers.

Before I talk more about this, be honest, and tell me your answers to the following questions, in the comment section below:

  • How many glasses of alcohol do you have in a week?
  • Are these drinks spread out through the week, or is it a binge on the weekend?
  • What is your alcohol beverage of choice?

I’ll share my answers to these questions in the comments below as well.

What Is Binge Drinking?

Binge drinking is defined as, “the consumption of an excessive amount of alcohol in a short period of time.”

Although there is no official binge number, it is widely accepted that a binge would be:

  • 5 or more drinks in 2 hours for men
  • 4 or more drinks in 2 hours for women

Here’s a crazy stat.

A US survey showed 1 in 6 adults binge drinks about 4 times a month, at an average of 8 drinks per binge.

Health Risks Of Binge Drinking And Hangovers

And it’s no surprise that a study in Finland showed binge drinking and hangovers increases your risk of heart disease and stroke.

So if you like your heart, try to stick to 1-2 drinks if you’re celebrating.

However, be careful if you already have high blood pressure, as your risk can double,

Or, if you have a history of type 2 diabetes or heart disease in your family, be careful.

Diet And Exercise Tips For Type 2 Diabetes

Not only can binge drinking lead to a quicker journey downstairs in the ground, excessive alcohol consumption can also mess with your muscle building and fat burning hormones.

This is caused by the increase in the aromatization of testosterone into estrogen.

Hence the overwhelming number of men walking around the streets with man boobs and beer bellies.

Excessive alcohol after your training can also eliminate all performance gains and can slow down your recovery.

It’s also been shown that just 3 drinks can decrease men’s strength by 45 percent, 12 hours after drinking alcohol.

“Healthier” Alcohol Options

If eliminating alcohol isn’t an option for you, focus on making “healthier” alcohol choices.

For example, choice a:

  • clear vodka
    • mixed with water and lemon or lime
  • red wine rich in antioxidants
    • Spanish, pinot noir, or merlot

Research shows, even just one hangover per year can increase your risk of stroke, compared to those who didn’t have a hangover.

Try to limit your consumption of alcohol to 1-2 drinks with meals, a few days a week.

And if you’re not a big drinker, but decide to go out for the occasional binge, it’s safe to say that hangover is guaranteed to get you!

But if that happens, I have your back.

4 Ways To Cure Your Hangover Faster

Here are 4 ways to reduce the effects and cure your hangover faster.

#1. Drink A Lot Of Water

5 Ways to Drink More Water

After a night a drinking, it’s important to drink a lot of water.

Aim for at least 0.7 oz of water per pound of bodyweight.

For example, I’m 175 pounds, so for me, that would equal, 122 oz of water, or approximately 4 liters.

Add lemon or another citrus fruit to your water to increase the alkalinity and help out your poor liver.

Also consider adding some electrolytes to your water.

#2. Eat A Lot Of Vegetables And Fruit

Asparagus has been shown to help cure the effects of a hangover.

I also love a good mango or pineapple when I overdo it.

#3. Drink Green Tea

We all know that green tea is high in antioxidants.

However, these antioxidants can help protect your liver from alcohol damage, as well as helping to speed up the detox process.

Drink some green tea before and after your night out of drinking.

The caffeine can also help alleviate the misery of a hangover, similar to what a coffee would.

#4. Workout

That’s right.

As crazy as it sounds, one way to eliminate the toxins is to sweat them out.

  1. Hey, what can I say? I’m a student. We drink tons of alcohol. Then again, I
    drink about 3 times the amount of water a normal person drinks. I guess
    that makes up for the dehydration?

  2. Rarely drink only one glass of irish whiskey in lets say 5 months ago
    celebrating a friend of mine getting a job and leaving our hospital

  3. My last hangover I had 7 Modelos Beer. The next morning was awful and I had
    to go to the zoo in the heat!!!! Not a good idea. I’ll limit to 2 beers
    moving forward.

  4. I don’t do alcohol.. I want to be healthy and strong so I try to keep all
    type of Poisons away lol.. I have been there and done that when I as
    younger and now that I’m working on a better, leaner me I stray away from a
    lot.

  5. Average twice a month with 2-3 drinks either red wine or Canadian club with
    Pepsi max. In saying that have not touched a drop in over a month, Used to
    party hard but these days i’d rather be in my pjs after a hard training
    session chillaxing!

  6. Hardly drink anymore. Maybe 2 times a month if any. When I do it’s usually
    only 1 drink. Used to be an “alcoholic”. So glad that part of my life is
    over.

  7. Eggs cure hangovers, they have a substance called cystine that break down
    the toxin in your liver. Works great 🙂

    its funny how wenever I have a ? Your vids answer it.

  10. Drink about 5 times a year random nights out! Always say I’m never drinking
    again n still drink! Surely 5times a year won’t do much damage!

  11. 2 pints of Guinness per week is my limit and when I’m racing or dieting I
    abstain entirely.

    Too many calories and too much money.

  13. I limit alcohol to just special occasions. Last time I had some it was Grey
    Goose & Water…it was the night of celebrating my engagement to Jessica…and
    I was in the “rough” the next morning.
