This is the one true formula to curing your hangover


‘Tis the season to go into work absolutely hammered from the festive drinking of the night before. But your alcohol fueled pain could soon be a thing of the past, as science has revealed the formula to cure your dreaded hangover, so you can step away from the ibuprofen.

Drum roll please! Here it is…

X (C2H5OH ++) = Y (B x 2 + 20gP) + (+ AV + rk2 + SPF x 10)


FUCKING HELL, NUMBERS. GIMME A BREAK. Some of us failed our Maths GCSE, y’know?

But luckily, the nutritionist behind the discovery of the 21st century, Amanda Hamilton, has been working with restaurant takeaway heroes Deliveroo to simplify this beast of an equation.

X = All the alcoholic units you consumed the night before

Y = The perfect hangover cure

And now for the useful stuff: 

B x 2  = Two slices of bread (high in carbohydrates so it’ll boost your blood sugars, speed up your metabolism, and eliminate that evil alcohol)

20pP = 20 grams of lean protein, such as eggs, turkey, quinoa, low-fat dairy, or salmon (the amino acids will help to detoxify your liver)

+ AV = Avocado (because it wouldn’t be breakfast without this delicious source of potassium)

+ rk2 = A few handfuls of spicy rocket leaves (the Vitamin B will help improve the function of your liver)

+ SPF x 10 = Sweet potato fries (all that potassium, fibre, beta-carotene and vitamin B will do revive your broken body)

So there you go. If you’re suffering today, or gearing up to the office party, this is the magic formula to have you back feeling your usual charming self in no time!
