Which is worse: Eating too much at a party – or drinking too much? Even if you’re not driving, drinking too much is a LOT worse. That’s according to registered dietician Stephanie Middleberg. She says, aside from possibly doing things you’ll regret, because drinking impairs your judgment, it also weakens your immune system. So you’re more likely to pick up an infection. Drinking too much at a party will also ruin your sleep. Sure you may sleep heavily at first, but once your body metabolizes the alcohol, your brain will wake up, causing restless sleep. Plus, drinking increases hunger for high-fat foods. So you may end up eating too much anyway. Bottom line: It’s best to limit your food and your alcohol intake at a party.
