New research has discovered why we wake up so hungry after a night of heavy drinking. Researchers have discovered an underlying neurological link between binge drinking and binge eating.
During the study, lab mice ate more food on days that they were also given alcohol, something we use to chalk up to simple lack of control.
They believe the brain cells or neurons which stimulate the urge to eat can also be activated by alcohol consumption.
Binge drinking was also linked to greasy foods, so don’t feel guilty the next time you blow your diet after a night out.
