My friends and I are going on vacation next month and since we are all guys in our early twenties the primary activities of the trip will be binge drinking and bar hopping. I used to be quite the drinker in college, but fast-foward 4 years and I pretty much gave up regular alcohol drinking in favor of the bodybuilding lifestyle. Now I drink at most once a month. I still have a decent alcohol tolerance, it takes about 8 drinks over the span of a few hours to get me drunk, but not hammered. I don't plan on getting hammered, but I will probably get drunk every night. The problem is that I get hangovers very easily and I get dehydrated quickly while I drink.
I don't get how my friends, who eat like garbage and are deficient in probably every nutrient, are able to get hammered every night, get 4 hours of sleep, wake up and start drinking for 7 days straight. It takes me an entire day to recover. It never used to be like this. I used to be able to handle a lot of boozing. I really think that eating a low carb diet made my body very bad at clearing out the toxins from alcohol.
I will probably drink at the most 10 drinks spread throughout any day. I really don't care about the alcohol, but I want to be able to enjoy a vacation with my friends, who I don't get to see that often anymore. I read the alcohol article on Bulletproof Executive and saw all the supps you can take, but it seems very impractical. I wouldn't mind taking something before and after I drink, but in between drinks will probably be impractical. Any advice?
