Are you wondering why you can’t lose weight or be healthy no matter how much you exercise?
Has it ever occur to you that maybe it is due to your drinking habits?
Here are 4 great reasons why you should stop drinking right now.
Alcohol leads to poor dietary habits
Alcohol contributes to poor dietary habits in a multitude of ways. The empty calories you’re drinking can completely derail the calorie count you’re trying to adhere to. Two or three beers can top out at over 500 calories. A Long Island Ice Tea has over 780 calories in it.
Studies have also shown that drinking at mealtimes is associated with insufficient intake of healthy foods, such as fruits and vegetables, and with excessive intake of animal protein.
Those appetizers you’re munching alongside your happy hour drinks have already negated your workout from this morning.
Now add in the greasy spoon breakfast you’re going to consume in the morning to deal with the inevitable hangover, and you can see why alcohol is not exactly a diet buddy.
