Fiber-rich foods

Eating fiber-rich foods makes alcohol break down and absorb faster. This makes alcohol less likely to reach your bloodstream. Opt for a fiber-rich meal on New Year's Eve. For example with beans, chickpeas or lentils.

Drink some kind of drink

If you only drink one type of drink, you can better keep track of how much you drink and keep the measure to yourself.

Drink as few carbonated drinks as possible

Carbonated drinks cause the surface of your stomach to expand. This means increased alcohol absorption. Drinks such as tonic and champagne accelerate this absorption rate.

Drink lots of water

Drinking plenty of water will keep you hydrated, which is essential for a hangover. Alcohol is dehydrating, so it's important to stay hydrated. The next day, water will function properly as a cleaning cycle.

The day after

Still a hangover on the first day of the year?

  • Choose a fruit juice, these contain a lot of sugar, which burns alcohol. The fructose will also restore the blood sugar level.
  • Eat eggs, they help rid the liver of harmful radicals.
  • Eat soft carbohydrates, these absorb all residual alcohol in the stomach and combat nausea.
