Let’s face it, if you’re a bacon lover you have probably come across a time or two in your life where you overdid it and ate too much. While bacon is delicious and can be healthy when sourced from free-range, organic pigs, sometimes it can be a lot of fat and cholesterol. The human body was meant to consume a variety of foods and when we binge on a little bacon hangover it may not be the end of the world, but there are some things we can do to remedy the fallout.
This article will focus specifically on how to use supplements to recover from eating too much bacon (or any other unhealthy food). We’re going to show you a few habits, tips, and reminders to keep in mind (along with a few biohacks!) that help you stay on track at work even when you’ve eaten too much delicious bacon.
- Activated Charcoal – consuming charcoal probably doesn’t sound like a good idea, but there is plenty of evidence to indicate activated charcoal (in capsule form) can help to absorb toxins from the food that we eat. People who are gluten intolerant often find activated charcoal to be a way of preventing most of the side effects.
- Butter Coffee – sometimes the only way to counteract too much fat is a little bit more! Combining butter and coffee with coconut oil (or MCT oil) can allow you to get a boost of focused energy. The best part about combining bacon with coffee is that fat makes the caffeine absorb more efficiently. Now you can take your bacon hangover and make it into a positive!
- Water – drinking a lot of water is going to be key if you are experiencing a bacon hangover. Like a regular alcohol hangover, bacon can contribute to dehydration (the body requires a lot of water to breakdown fats). Just drink a few liters of water and you should be good to go.
- Nootropics – if you’ve never heard of nootropics, they are supplements that can help aid in cognitive function. Particularly, nootropics are useful for helping to improve memory formation, help with focus and concentration, and a host of other benefits. One of the main benefits is to prevent cognitive decline from chemicals in the body! A famous nootropic is called Alpha Brain and is mentioned on Joe Rogan’s podcast often. Any good Alpha Brain review will give you details about what you can expect.
It might sound odd to consider a bacon hangover, but if you have never had this experience you must not truly love bacon enough. Too much of anything can be a bad thing even if it is something as delicious as bacon. We’ve provided a few tips and tricks that you can use so you don’t feel your day is disrupted when you’ve eaten too much.
