Survey reveals the average American spends nearly $1,000 a year on hangover comfort food…
For every up, there is a down; for every high, a low; and in no situation is that more true than the morning after the night before. After a rowdy night of beers or cocktails with friends, waking the next day can be painful. The nearly universal go-to for a hangover is comfort food. Whether it’s a large breakfast or greasy fast food, spending a few bucks for reprieve from a massive headache and upset will always feel like money well spent.
Solutions-Recovery.com also polled people who generally eat healthily; but nearly half of them (47%) confessed to resorting to unhealthy food to help get them through it a hangover.
Other findings of the survey include:
Forty-three percent of people say they consume more calories when hungover and almost 1 in 5 (19%) say they often eat when they’re drunk – but can’t remember what they consumed when they wake up the next morning.
Despite all these attempts to make it all go away, 37% of people don’t actually believe a hangover cure exists, which is true. The only sure-fire way to cure or prevent a hangover is to not drink in the first place.
