Celebrity hangover cures

 

Celebrity hangover cures the celebrities swear by but prevention is better than the cure. A hangover describes the sum of unpleasant physiological effects following heavy consumption of a drug. The most commonly reported characteristics of a hangover include headache, nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, lethargy, dysphoria, diarrhea and thirst.

Kate Hudson : “I’ll drink lots of tomato juice, have fresh fruit, an avocado and take loads of vitamins!”

Daniel Craig : “You’re best off sweating it off after a heavy night. I find if I really can’t force myself to work out and get my body moving, a stint in the sauna is the best way to go.”

Kate Winslet : “A sausage and bacon sarnie usually does me. I also have a big glass of orange juice and a sugary cup of tea. The combination of vitamins and sugar perk you up. I usually take that back to bed with me, have a little sleep afterwards then get in the shower to really wake me up.”

Brad Pitt : “Being a parent is my big hangover cure. About a year ago I’d had a couple of beers and my daughter Zahara had this piece of ice that had been dropped on the floor, and she was putting it in her mouth and began to choke on it, and that was it. You have to be absolutely on top of every situation. The other s**t doesn’t work any more. When they wake up in the middle of the night you have to be there. And you can’t deal with children when you have a hangover – that’s just a misery.”

George Clooney : “My hangover cure is simple – don’t get one. I don’t live at full tilt the way I used to. I hate waking up with the kind of hangover you get from going on huge benders with your buddies. Also, since my neck surgeries, I’ve been forced to take things easier and not beat up my body the way I used to. I’m more cautious.”

Gordon Ramsay : “I do occasionally overindulge, especially at this time of year when I like to gather together my head chefs for a well-earned Christmas drink. I’ll get a cab home, safe in the knowledge that Tana (my wife) will have bought in all the ingredients for a kedgeree to fend off the next morning’s hangover. It’s the best, as the slight stodginess soaks up any remaining Southern Comfort. It’s not a 100 per cent cure, but then we’re supposed to suffer a little… aren’t we?”

Renée Zellweger : “A full English breakfast is good, or beans on toast. That kind of does the trick for me.”

Robbie Williams :“A cup of tea followed by cheese and onion crisps, a Mars bar and two cartons of Ribena.”

Kylie Minogue : Favourite hangover cure – “It has to be egg sandwiches. I love them.”

Dannii Minogue : “My perfect hangover cure is putting a scraping of vegemite and grated cheese on toast and then grilling it”

Cameron Diaz : “Grease is the only cure for a hangover” “An Egg McMuffin from McDonald’s and a beer. You have to drink more of the alcohol you’ve killed yourself with. Hair of the dog, that’s what it is. And you have to get grease. Grease is the only cure for a hangover.”

Kirsty Gallagher : “If I do get a hangover I drink loads of water and eat every hour. I also take a vitamin B supplement called Berocca.”

Kerry Katona: “My way of beating a hangover is simple: you can’t beat good greasy fat chips with loads of salt and vinegar”

Nigella Lawson: Hangover cure is the “Prairie Oyster” which consists of an egg yolk, tabasco, worcester sauce, brandy and vinegar – you have to swallow it down in one gulp.

Marco Pierre White: “I have a late night curry after a few pints to protect against getting a terrible hangover the next day”

Dermot O’Leary: “My hangovers get worse the older I get, so the only way to get over a hangover is to stay horizontal the next day”.

Will Mellor: “Take a two-litre bottle of water to bed with you and sip it throughout the night.”

Musician Moby: “My hangover cure is pretty complicated. Before going to sleep, I have a Tofurky, mustard and cucumber sandwich and a glass of carrot-orange juice. In the morning I have a special juice made from bananas, ginger, carrots, oranges with spiralina and cayenne pepper”.

Hangover Cures

We all know the sensible thing to do is not to drink to the point of a hangover in the first place but let’s face it, it happens to us all at one point or another so how can you minimize the fallout? Below are a list of remedies and old wives tales which aim to cure.

We are in no way saying any of these are a good idea or that they are likely to work so take it all with a hefty pinch of salt and good humor and bear in mind we are a Glasgow Restaurant not doctors!

If you have an alternative ‘cure’ send us a comment via the form below and we’ll post the best and most original suggestions!

01. Hair of the Dog

In case you’d not heard of this cure it’s the idea that having an alcoholic drink the morning after will help ease the pain. This will only appear to cure your hangover as it introduces more alcohol into your system and effectively numbs you to the previous nights shenanigans, in truth, it only suspends the effects until your ‘hair of the dog‘ wears off and then hits you with a vengeance. If you are going to go down this route then it’s been claimed more than once that a Bloody Mary is the way to go..

Ingredients

1 1/2 oz vodka

3 oz tomato juice

1 dash lemon juice

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2 – 3 drops Tabasco® sauce

1 lime wedge

Method

Shake all ingredients (except lime wedge) with ice and strain into an old-fashioned glass over ice cubes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the wedge of lime and serve.

02. Water

This is the only point thats tried and tested. The nature of alochol makes you visit the little girls/boys room more often therefore making you dehydrated, it also reduces the amount of potassium in your body which is what causes the dizzyness, cramps etc. When dehydrated the brain shrinks away from your skull slightly and is not as well supported hence the pounding headaches. Best you can do for yourself is rehydrate as much as possible.

03. Coffee, coffee, coffee

Hands up those of you who immediately reach for the coffee the morning after…thought as much! We all do it, but it’s possibly one of the worst drinks we could be having (if you ignore the hair of the dog) Coffee is a diuretic and therefore makes you pee more than normal, add that to the fact that you are already dehydrated from the night before and you’re just asking for the headache to last longer. As was said in point 2, you can’t beat a good pint of water, or at the very least wash your coffee down with a good drink of water!

04. Fry up

The sheer amount of calories in a fry up goes towards giving your body an energy boost to help you get through the day. And there are some claims that cysteine in eggs that helps clean up all the toxins. Only problem with a fry up is it smells amazing, looks great but can you get past the first mouthful!

05. Sleep

You’ve put your body through alot and it has a fair amount of repairing to be getting on with. If you have the time and your pounding head will let you then try to get more sleep. This will let your body repair itself faster without having to devote energy to general day to day functions such as moving!

Cameron Diaz’s Wacky Workout!

Cameron Diaz has earned the title of one of the fittest women in Hollywood. She didn’t always have the slender and perfect physique that she has today. Six years ago her body journey started thanks to the grueling three-month martial arts training she endured for the movie Charlie’s Angels. When asked about her Charlie’s Angels training..

“At the end of each day, I thought I would die” she admits. “It was the most intense thing I have ever done in my life. I made a decision that I would never let it get to a point where I forgot what it was like to be strong”

She has since then recruited Teddy Bass as a celebrity personal trainer. She works out five days a week but focuses strongly on outdoor sports aswell (such as surfing, snow boarding and hiking)

Her personal training is paying off big time. She is constantly in tabloid magazines under ‘best bikini body’ sections and her legs are quite often complimented.

The paparazzi commonly snap Cameron Diaz at the beach surfing or swimming. She has been seen sun baking with fellow Charlie’s Angels star Drew Barrymore which caused much controversy after they were photographed smoking a suspicious looking cigarette.

What Does Cameron Diaz Eat?

Cam skips breakfast and has dinner instead, ensuring that she stays fuller for longer and consumes less calories during the day. She also eats six small low carb meals per day. Cam is also rumored to eat 10 meals a day but judging by her slender physique we are inclined to argue that she eats six meals.

Breakfast: Garlic rice, broccolini, eggs, lemon and either chicken or beef.

Meal 2: Protein shake with water

Lunch: Salad and lean chicken or beef

Meal 4: Fruit & a handful of nuts

Dinner: Egg white omlette with herbs, tomato, onion, mushrooms

Meal 6: Protein shake with water

How Does Cameron Diaz Workout?

Cameron Diaz has a vigorous workout focused on toning.

Monday – Friday

25-30 minutes of cardio and weights plus reverse lunges (see below) and wide plies

Reverse Lunge: Stand with your feet together. Keep your chest out, mid-section firm and do not arch your back. Place your hands on your hips and step backwards with your left leg (bending both of your knees). Once your left knee is almost touching the floor, push up carefully with your left foot until you’re back to the starting position. Swap legs and repeat.

As mentioned earlier, Diaz does plenty of outdoor sports in addition to her workout.

Cameron Diaz’s workout? Surfing

Name: Cameron Diaz

Date of Birth: 30 Aug 1972

Birth Place: San Diego, USA

Cameron Diaz Surfer

American actress and former fashion model. She is one of only two actresses (the other being Julia Roberts) to join the “$20 Million Club” after receiving this salary for Charlie’s Angels.

Cameron’s workout-wonder? Surfing. After she split with Justin Timberlake in early 2007, she started focusing on her body, and worked out with pro-surfer (and beach hottie) Kelly Slater. She describes surfing as a ‘religious experience’, and also loves snow-boarding and hiking. Cameron’s also a well-known gym bunny, and follows a vigorous workout focused on toning. From Monday to Friday, she does 25 to 30 minutes of cardio and weights plus reverse lunges and wide plies – gym speak. Cam uses personal trainer Teddy Bass to put her through her paces. ‘[Working out] is a major part of keeping my sanity. I have a personal trainer three times a week — that’s my one celebrity indulgence. I’m really lazy and I need somebody to tell me what to do or I don’t do it,’ she laughs.
