Nutrition Principle #8 to Losing Weight and Looking & Feeling your Best

Nutrition Habit #8 - Avoid or Limit alcohol in your Diet

I'm probably not going to be very popular after today's posting...

Although alcohol is low in fat content, it is very high in empty calories. In addition, alcohol activates the enzyme that uptakes fat from our bloodstream and stores it in our fat cells. Therefore any food you consume in combination with alcohol will more likely end up in our fat storage depot areas like our hips, thighs and abs. And finally as we all know, alcohol lowers our inhibitions making us more likely to make poorer choices - including poorer food choices! So practice moderation in this area.

Yours in health and fitness,
