Less liquor to lean
This week have less than 3 alcoholic drinks. Still, I'd rather you eat your calories than
drink them—especially if they come from alcohol. There’s plenty of empty calories in
that alcoholic beverage, whatever type you've chosen. Alcohol is calorie dense, and
further wreaks havoc on your fat-burning hormones, increasing your belly fat and
making it harder for you to lose that pesky flab.
And, I’m convinced that most people feel since they’re not chewing food, the liquid
calories don’t count as much—if only that was true! I’m not saying don’t ever have
liquor, but limit it strictly. Ladies, wine does NOT count as a fruit serving!
