Dry Cannes? Toby Jarvis Shares Tips on How to Pace Yourself

Navigating a party without a drink in your hand can be daunting.

Partying on the Cote d'Azur, chatting with excitable like-minded souls, all without a drink can be even more challenging!

I’ve never been a big drinker. Sure I’ve had my moments (as some will attest).  

Since my first Cannes - well over a decade ago, I’ve done one completely dry trip, and this will be my fourth 'almost dry' trip.  

Because alcohol is a poison, your whole body has to deal with that first. Anything you ingest after alcohol is given second priority and 75% more likely to be absorbed as fat..

A bottle of Rosé is 625 calories, equivalent to 2.7 Mars Bars! After two bottles, your liver is going to be working overtime. Super high sugar levels will result in an energy crash later on.

Solution: eat carbs, bread, pasta etc…. Avoid greasy food as it won’t make you feel any better, plus you’ll be taking on some serious calories on top of the booze.

Hangover cures can be individualised. Salts, potassium are a good start.

Eat well - drink lots of water, especially in the sun.

Avoid daytime drinking. Try keeping it to the evenings. And after you’ve eaten. You’ll last longer, remember more and feel human in the morning.  And, won't return home needing ten days off.

Think 'pace not disgrace.' See you there!
