When you decide to drink alcohol, that brings you a lot of calories. But entirely quitting alcohol to lose weight strikes me as a very uninviting idea. “Don’t invite me for a while, because now I’m really going to stop drinking to lose weight!” That is something I have heard my friends say all too many times. Still I always catch them falling back into their old pattern after a while. Do not be ashamed if this is a dilemma for you. You are not the only one. Who says losing weight and a healther life need to be completely free of alcohol or partying? Has a miraculous cure for all alcohol’s damging effects been invented? No, there is not. Luckily, there are some lifehacks that allow you to shout CHEERS without feeling bad about it, without waking up with a hangover or gaining lots of weight. I am a partychick that does not skip a birthday and makes healthy choices. Maybe this article will stimulate you to start drinking responsibly as well. This is how you avoid a layer of fat on your body and also being a killjoy:
A lot of people tend to get some pizza or Ben&Jerry’s when they get home from a night out. Those barely contain any nutritients. Make sure that you have products with lean proteins and vegetables like chicken fillet, beef or farmer’s cheese. Good carbohydrates are in wholegrain pasta, rice and potatoes.
Quitting sweet white wine is a big step in the process of losing weight. Are you really a big fan of white wine, choose the dry variety. Red wine contains less calories and some added benefits! Red wine is well-known for its big amount of antioxidants. White wine has those too, but not nearly as many. Recent research by the Oregon State University proved that the health of obesitas patients improved by drinking darkly coloured grape juice – in this case, red wine. This solved some metabolism problems.
Also try to work out for some time the morning after a night out. If you have a slow metabolism, you are often cold and you gain weight quickly. By actively dancing and keeping to it I lose weight without refraining from drinking alcohol. Maybe you are not the type to completely go wild at a party, that is not a problem! Before I go to a party, sometimes I step into the gym. By doing weight training your muscle mass will grow and that improves the burning of fat in your body.
