Drunk eating has become a popular phenomenon among today’s youth.
If you are ever in downtown London at night when the bars are starting to close their doors, you will notice fast food restaurants starting to get swarmed with people.
Alcohol impairs decision-making abilities, so it is not a surprise that we are less able to regulate what we are eating, and how much we are eating.
The unhealthy poutine or burger you are eating at 2am is not only affecting your waistline, but it is also putting you at a higher risk to develop things like diabetes, heart-disease, and high blood pressure.
Of course one unhealthy night is not going to kill you, but these unhealthy habits will add up and they can really take a toll on your health. For example, a regular size poutine from the famous “Smoke’s Poutinerie” contains over 700 calories, and some contain over 1,000.
Here are some ways you can avoid snacking on all of those saturated fats after a night out at the bar:
– Don’t drink to the point where you are unaware of what and how much food you are consuming.
– Prepare yourself some healthy snacks so you can munch on those if you are hungry.
– Make sure you eat a nutritious meal before you go out.
