Alcohol and Fat Loss

What you need to know…with Coach Perri Stevens

Is Alcohol truly bad for you? What are the effects of alcohol on metabolism? How much alcohol can you drink without any major effects?

Some facts:

 Alcohol raises estrogen which can lead to an increase risk of breast cancer and fat storage

 1 drink = 30g sugar

 The body does not know how to metabolize alcohol so alcohol calories get immediately stored as FAT 😱

 It take 2-3 days to entirely metabolize alcohol and 4-8 hours to breakdown enough of it so it no longer slows down the metabolism

 1g of alcohol = 7 calories

 If you are going to drink alcohol, 2 drinks a week will have minimal damage to your body

 Stick to clear alcohol and red wine

 Chase each alcoholic beverage with a big glass of water to avoid dehydration.

If you’d like some support with your nutrition plan (or help to figure out how to include alcohol into your nutrition plan and still drop pounds!), let’s get a conversation started!
