SCREWUP: Boozing with the Guys
- Drink Up, Again: Beyond all those calories you chugged, alcohol dehydrates the body, impairing aerobic capacity and endurance. Drink 64 to 84 ounces of water. Eat fruits like apples, blueberries, and cherries, which have a high water content, says American Dietetic Association rep Amy Jamieson-Petonic, R.D. They’ll help restore fluid balance and fat-burning capabilities.
- Eat Regularly: Go for grilled meat, plain nuts, Greek yogurt, or raw vegetables. Eating a little bit of food every three to four hours will help to prevent swings in blood sugar and speed your recovery.
