*Ask Jen: The Morning After Edition

Reader "L" wants to know, "What will cure a hangover?"

Not drinking too much. But you already know that. Before you go to bed, make sure you drink lots of water to rehydrate your body and take a painkiller that doesn't have acetaminophen in it (Advil good, Tylenol bad). For the morning after, drink more water or Gatorade. You'll want to consume some carbs to get your blood-sugar back up and protein for energy. Avoid fatty foods, which will make you feel more nauseous.

Do you have a question for me? You can e-mail it. If I know the answer, I'll answer it. If I don't, I might make something up.
