Happy Monday, Friends!
When it comes to fat loss the temptations to stray from a consistently healthy path can come from anywhere:
- family events
- the break room at work
- the sample aisle at grocery stores
- convenient fast food options
- and even well-meaning friends.
One of the most common situations we hear about is the temptation to indulge on the weekends, especially in alcohol and desserts.
As a reminder, the Center for Disease Control states that Heavy Drinking for women is 2 alcoholic drinks or more in a day and for men 3 or more per day.
In general for our health, mild or moderate alcohol consumption (or less) is best.
If you have a fat loss goal, alcohol will only slow the path.
We realize though that this change may feel like a sacrifice and may not be something you want to do.
Here are some tips:
1- drink at least one glass of water preferably 3 after any alcoholic beverage.
2- try switching to sparkling water after a cocktail
3- plan non alcohol involving events with your friends
Ie: instead of happy hour go for a walk
Change takes time.
For change to work, we must want it and be bought into its merit.
We must also be prepared for some set backs.
Any steps toward a healthier you are progress, so just keep at it.
Committed to your success,
Megan K and the team
