Eat Before You Drink Alcohol
Edited by Train Wreck, Eng, VisiHow
It's important to eat before you drink alcohol, but knowing how to eat the right food before drinking can be challenging. Some believe that if you eat before you drink beer that you should have different food than if you are drinking wine. This is not true. The best food to eat before drinking is a combination of lean sources of protein and healthy fats. These are foods that will slow the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream. They are also much better than the refined carbohydrates you may be craving, like chips, cookies, or white rice.
That said, if you're still asking yourself what to eat before a night of drinking, we've got the answers. This wiki is filled with great things you can eat that will help slow down the absorption of alcohol. Best of all, they're also (mostly) good for you, and will help you avoid having to sober yourself up later, or get rid of alcohol breath the next day.
Why should you eat before drinking?
Knowing why you should eat before drinking is important. In this case, it's also pretty easy to explain. Basically, alcohol is absorbed directly into the blood stream through the stomach and intestines if it gets that far. Put simply, the faster alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream, the more quickly you'll get drunk. Getting drunk too fast means you'll be more likely to lose control, and also means that you're not drinking responsibly! Read on for our list of 16 delicious and healthy things to eat before you drink.

- Remember that no matter what you eat before you drink, drinking too much can still leave you a mess later in the evening and completely wrecked the next day. Drink in moderation and drink responsibly!
