Alcohol vs. Fat

I get this question often, and the season seems right to post this one again…

“What about alcohol?”

I’m not here to break up the party,  this tip is just so you know…

At 7g per calorie the problem is not the calories.  Sure you can make caloric allotments for alcohol in your week, in your day or even your cheat meals.


Yes it may help to…

• make you feel great

•forget your woes

•release stress

•get the party started

But If your goal is to burn fat, you can’t drink alcohol and expect to burn fat.

Alcohol is considered a toxin and the liver will work hard to rid your body of these toxins.  Since fat is considered a toxin too, the liver will choose to rid of the alcohol and stop the fat burning process until it’s all gone.

You can’t rid of  alcohol and burn fat at the same time!

By all means this holiday season bring the party on, just don’t be surprised where those extra pounds came from even if you’re not indulging in sweets.

Be safe and Party on …Happy Holidays to all !

In peace, health & with much love,
