Blow Off Steam. Not Your Diet.

Blow Off Steam. Not Your Diet.

Sometimes it’s hard to resist the temptation to partake in a few drinks at the end of a long day or at social functions… but drinking alcohol can totally cripple your weight loss goals.

Why Alcohol Sabotages Weight Loss

  • It slows down your metabolism.

  • It’s empty calories with zero nutritional value.

  • Most mixers are loaded with sugar.

  • Drinking increases your appetite and decreases your self-control... the perfect storm for overeating and making poor food choices.

  • Alcohol causes depression even after you sober up. This means you’ll have less motivation to eat right and work out.

If you must have a drink (or 3)...

  • Drink a fresh green juice before you go out.

  • Replace sugary mixers with club soda and fresh lemon or lime.

  • Add cold-pressed juice to your fruity cocktails instead of processed juice. 

  • Try a gluten-free vodka like Tito’s.

  • If you are a social butterfly, try limiting your drinking to Friday and Saturday nights.
