Ever wonder why your body craves things like kebabs, spice bags and pizzas after having a rake of pints?

All is revealed in tonight's episode of What Are You Eating? which will air on RTE One. 

As many people know, alcohol naturally causes your blood sugar level to drop which leads to your brain telling you it needs to be refuelled. 

Generally in that situation we eat anything we can get our grubby mitts on and what kinds of foods are usually available in the wee hours when you've finished drinking? High fat and high salt foods of course, just like the ones mentioned above. 

In tonight's episode, Philip Boucher-Hayes investigates Ireland's drinking habits further with the help of contributors such as dietician Ruth Charles. 

What Are You Eating? airs tonight on RTE One at 8.30pm.
