What you eat for dinner before a big night out will determine whether you're the life of the party...or the story everyone tells the next day.

Instead, reach for something that's filled with water like cucumber slices or watermelon.

2 | Salad

Can you say "zero to one hundred real quick"? Make sure it has some form of protein in it like chicken, which takes longer to digest and will slow down the rise of your blood alcohol level.
