How to Survive Super Bowl Excesses

How to Survive Super Bowl Excesses

02/03/11

THURSDAY, Feb. 3 (HealthDay News) -- If you tend to overindulge in food and drink while watching the Super Bowl, there are some simple things you can do to ease the ill effects you may feel the next day, says an expert.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Cynthia Yoshida offers the following suggestions:

  • Stay hydrated by alternating every alcoholic beverage with a non-alcoholic drink. Caffeine-free, non-carbonated drinks, such as water, can help lessen the effects of a hangover.
  • Avoid overeating, but if you can't resist the buffet and find yourself constipated the next morning, there are a number of gentle over-the-counter products that can take care of that problem.
  • Whether your team wins or loses, it may be difficult to get up the next morning. But being active after a late night of eating and drinking will help boost your metabolism and make you feel better. A brisk walk in the morning may be just what the doctor ordered.
