Hangovers Are Actually As Bad For Your Health As Booze Itself

Just one alcohol fuelled evening a week can cause a 2lb weight gain. We know, depressing right? But it's not the calorific booze that's doing it... It's the KFC you're throwing down your neck mid-hangover the following day.

Munching on a greasy full English breakfast, and pretty much gorging on sachets of salt in a bid to feel normal the morning (1pm still counts as morning on a Saturday FYI) after the night before could lead to a two stone weight gain in just one year... Even if you're super healthy the majority of the time.


A survey, commissioned by Slimming World, found us girls reach "tipping point" - the moment we start to drink and eat more than intended - after consuming eight units of alcohol AKA two to three large glasses of wine.

Past that point women were found to consume an extra 5,725 calories. As the Daily Mail cares to inform us, that's "nearly two dozen jam doughnuts".
