Protein Protein Protein
Protein keeps the stomach busy.
Because they take a relatively long time to digest, protein-rich foods such as meat, nuts and cheese will delay the opening of the pyloric valve, which allows the stomach’s contents to pass into the small intestine. The small intestine is where most alcohol is absorbed into the blood.
If you can’t find a protein-rich snack, make sure you eat something else. “Eating food of any sort keeps the stomach busy,” Schaefer said. “And, food will absorb and dilute the alcohol that’s poured into the stomach.”
