Why Alcohol is Making You Fat

Hey Everyone!


Alcohol can be a regular friend that joins you for dinner, the ball game, or a party.   For some, it might just be an occassional visitor- adding cheer to a festive occassion!  Regardles of how often you “hang” with alcohol and friends… you need to know the “skinny” on alcohol and how it will effect your goals!

There are many factors that affect weight los and muscle gains, making the processes more complicated than it may seem. The body produces different hormones in response to different types of foods and/or drinks. Losing weight and gaining body sculpting muscle is not only about calorie consumption but also about the types of foods and drinks consumed.  Alcohol is one of the worst culprits when it comes to inhibiting weight loss and muscle gains because it disrupts the delicate balance of nutrition, fluid, and hormones needed to lose fat.

A few pointers:

1. Alcohol boosts cortisol, a fat-creating hormone
2. Drinking often accompanies irresponsible eating
3. Alcohol is high in calories
4. Alcohol is a toxin that the body is forced to dibilitate (when it could be focusing on fat loss and muscle gain)

So before you accept a drink again, remember some of these pointers and realize what your vision is and that you are on a mission to achieve your health goals!
