|Happy Monday Fit Fam,|
When it comes to fat loss the temptations to stray from a consistently healthy path can come from anywhere:
-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,
