Post Party Meal Plans

What are post-party meals and why do we need them? Before diving into nutritious, healthy meal recipes, let us understand what ‘post-party meal’ actually means and how important it is for our bodies. While prepping for a party we focus on which dress to wear, which jewellery to carry, makeup, heels, etc missing out on the most important point – how to prep our body for a night of partying and drinking. 

  • Prepare your body in advance by having a wholesome, nutritious breakfast.
  • Avoid starving yourself for the ‘big event’ as it might lead to starvation and you might end up making the wrong food choices.
  • Studies show that when your body has a good meal comprising of complex

carbohydrates and healthy fats, we tend to absorb alcohol slower in our body. This

phenomenon can prevent fast intoxication and reduce the next day’s symptoms of a hangover.

  • Drink lots of water and hydrate yourself throughout the day.

Effects of alcohol consumption on our body

If you are a regular drinker you must be accustomed to the way alcohol affects your mind and body. However, for a newbie, the experience might be overwhelming, hence leading to headaches, hangovers, giddiness, nausea, etc. 

Increased cardiac output – blood vessels in the skin dilate causing a temporary increase in heart rate and blood pressure.

Irregular sugar levels – The pancreas and liver regulate the use of insulin in our body therefore after heavy alcohol consumption our liver gets busy detoxifying the blood of ethanol and acetaldehyde resulting in irregular blood sugar levels.

Fat Storage – Extra consumed calories easily get converted to fat.

How to identify a hangover

The morning after a night of partying feels like a nightmare. The more you drink, the more severe the hangover will be. What does a hangover feel like? 

  • Severe headache
  • Diarrhoea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Impaired memory
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness

While at the party

  • Avoid mixing drinks
  • Keep sipping on water throughout the day. With every glass of alcoholic drink consumed
  • one to two glasses of water.
  • Do not mix sweetened colas or juices with your drink
  • Make sure to balance the ratio of alcoholic beverages with that of water
  • Focus on having fun with friends and family rather than concentrating all your attention to food and drinks.
  • Don’t have a restrictive mindset or an all or none view. Practice moderation.
