TAKE A SPOON OF OLIVE OIL BEFORE YOU START DRINKING
I am sure this sounded a little gross but many Mediterranean cultures swear by this unique technique for preventing hangover.
The principle of taking olive oil is basically the same principle as eating foods that are rich in fats before drinking.
The fat present in olive oil will help limit the level at which your body absorbs alcohol. So if you can stomach it, just take a tablespoon of olive oil before you go out for the party.
If you can’t take the olive oil directly, you can dip some crusty bread into the olive oil or spread the tablespoon of olive oil over salad.


ALTERNATE ALCOHOLIC DRINKS WITH WATER
The science students will know that Alcohol is a diuretic which means alcohol makes you urinate more often than you will do normally which leads to dehydration.
Dehydration is one of the major causes of hangover symptoms like thirst, headaches and dizziness. For this reason, drinking more water to re hydrate during drinking will help lessen the severity of having hangover.
Take a big glass of water before you start drinking alcohol and try to drink a glass of water for every alcoholic drink you take while drinking.
Taking water in between alcoholic drinks will slow down the speed at which you take alcoholic drink and it will prevent you from drinking too much alcohol too quickly.
I promise you your body will thank you for doing this.


ORDER THE EGGS
I guess this will amaze you, but it’s good you know that eggs help is a good source of cysteine which helps break down the headache causing toxin produced by the body when digesting alcohol.
Just go with a plain poached egg or dry omelet that won’t affect your stomach.


AVOID SMOKING WHILE DRINKING
Research and studies have shown that smoking alongside drinking tends to increase the risk of and severity of having hangover.
A research carried out on about 100 drinkers who drank the same amount of alcohol showed that those that smoke were the victims of the hangover.




DRINK THE CLEAR DRINKS AND AVOID THE DARKER FLUIDS

Take clear alcohol like gins, vodka or white wine that contain little or no congeners in favor of the darker fluids.


DRINK WATER BEFORE GOING TO BED AFTER THE PARTY
