3 – Alcohol – Guide to Eating Healthier
Why should you change it?
Alcohol contains many calories without vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients that your body needs. Alcohol consumption can block fat burning, which leads to weight gain and nutritional deficiencies.
If your goal is to lose weight, eliminating alcohol consumption might be the best advice. But if quitting alcohol drinking is not an alternative for you, then….
Change for lower-calorie alcohol or pure forms of liquor. Change that beer for a light beer, or wine – they are both relatively low in carbs, per serving. Also, hard liquor, such as rum, whiskey, gin and vodka has no carbs at all.
However, keep your alcohol consumption low, 1 to 2 drinks a day, as excessive drinking will hinder your body’s ability to burn fat.
