  1. Myth: Eat lots of greasy food

The food you eat after a night of excessive drinking does not necessarily solve a hangover. Eating meals before drinking is a better option.

  1. Cure: Drink water

Water helps you rehydrate. Alcohol dehydrates the body which leads to hangover symptoms like headaches.

  1. Prevention: Eat well before drinking

Food helps slow the speed of alcohol absorption. This means that if you have eaten well before drinking, hangover pain may lessen the next day.

  1. Prevention: Limit alcohol intake

Try your best to pace yourself at parties. Try not to drink more than one drink within an hour and accompany drinks with a glass of water.
