Perk up post party

Clinical nutritionist Ambika Nair shares effective ways to re-energise post a party and what one must avoid in diet.


With the New Year’s round the corner, the cheerful and energetic are already in the party mood. Dancing all night, chattering with friends over drinks and food, and having a gala time completes a party for most youngsters.

Once you are back home though, you start complaining of exhaustion and body ache. So all you party animals out there, here’s how you can revamp your day’s diet and feel healthy, in spite of all the indulgences the previous night.

The long hours of partying ignoring your food habits, lack of hydration, effect of loud music, etc can cause symptoms like hangover headaches, achy muscles, nausea, and gastritis symptoms like acidity, indigestion, and so on. Ambika Nair, clinical nutritionist and director of My Nutritional Needs, shares useful tips to bring your system back to normal post party.
Water’s the best solution

When you are physically active, dancing all night, talking, and singing, you suffer mild dehydration, which can result in fatigue, achy muscles and can pose a threat to your urinary tract.

Nair says, “Alcohol is a diuretic and it dehydrates the system. Therefore replenishing the body water balance from time to time can prevent severe post party fatigue. Along with water, the electrolytes such as sodium and potassium also need to be replaced by drinking electrolyte-rich solutions such as coconut water, fruit juices, ORS (Oral Rehydration Solution), herbal tea with mint leaves or ginger, and various smoothies, which help the body to restore its balance quickly.”

An average person drinks only about 3-4 glasses of water each day, while taking in roughly the same amount of dehydrating fluids such as coffee and cola. That’s a threat to the body in the long run, since every system in the body including the immune system depends on water for effective functioning. “Most research institutes of health services recommend that adults should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. You can consume water through fruits rich in water content, yoghurt, smoothies, and compensate the loss,” she remarks.
