    What is the best thing to eat when you have a hangover?

    I've heard greasy food is best and I've heard others say all healthy salad and veggies work better.

    bananas, starches, tons of water, and ibuprofen. really, a hangover takes time to go away. i always try to drink at least one small glass of water between drinks.. when i do that, i never have hangovers. feel better!

    I actually try to stay away from carbs the next day if I'm a bit hung over.  Depending on what exactly you drank (and ate) the night before, part of the reason you feel so lousy is because if inflammation due to a massive blood sugar spike from the booze, and toxins piled into your system.  Help your body cleanse itself by letting your blood sugar drop a bit, and drink lots of water to flush everything out.  That's my theory anyway.

    The best answer of course is not to drink so much that we get hung over, but we all know that's just crazy talk!

    quick answer,.... anything you dont mind tasting twice,.... ice cream?  that your sure you can throw up easily without chunks!

    longer answer,... anything that sounds good,... comfort foods,... each person is SOO very different for this,.. there is no magic bullet.

    the serious drinker will give you the old "hair of the dog" schpiel,... but unless your a serious drunk i wouldnt advise it,... and if your a serious drunk you dont need hangover advice, ha!

    take tylonol and potasium as soon as you can hold things down on your stomache. the worst WORST cause of the hangover is A) the effects of the alchohol on the brain,... B) the dehydration caused by the alchohol in your system. the tylonol will help your battered brain and the potasium will replenish your body of all you donated to the pubs plumbing the night before.

    you need clear fluids and comfort foods that will sit well on your stomache,.... you'll learn what works for you,..... or you'll learn to drink iced tea.

    For me personally, I like to have a coke (or pepsi, your choice) first thing in the morning. Then I stick to water for the rest of the day. I also enjoy a huge, greasy hamburger. Sometimes, I get weird cravings for things like a chili dog. I say eat whatever sounds good, pop an Advil and then take a nap. You'll feel so much better afterward.

    Personally, i try to eat really bland foods that don't have much taste at all. Sometimes i go for pita chips or plain toast/bagel etc. Obviously some sort of pain killer..oh and green tea! I know it's a drink but a lot of studies have shown that it helps..i can attest to that. Basically, whatever craving you have but you don't wanna eat super greasy food on top of your hangover because = a lot of work for your poor liver..

    Bread, it actually soaks up the boozes and water to keep you hydrated but that's what I did when I used to drink... Good Luck

    In the old days when I when I woke with a hangover I'd just start drinking again.  This always settled the pains faster than anything.  I'm not say it's good, I'm just saying it worked for me.  If you have things to do then just tough it out.
