We all know there is definite FOMO (fear of missing out), involved when you decide to put down the bottle and pick up those healthy habits. But we’re here to give you and your body the best chance at success... and that means, ditching the drink. Before you go & get stuck into the challenge, let's give you the lowdown!
WHY FREQUENT ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION AFFECTS FAT LOSS:
To achieve maximum results, your body’s metabolic rate must increase and must be in a fat burning state. When you throw alcohol into the mix, all your body’s metabolic processes are slowed down or sometimes even stopped, because alcohol becomes the number one priority for your body to metabolise. There
is nowhere for your body to store alcohol – that’s why, frequent alcohol consumption can prevent fat loss and act as a contributor to weight gain.
DEHYDRATION SLOWS THE METABOLISM
Not only are these empty calories slowing tackling your insides, alcohol can also contribute to dehydration. Ever wondered why you wake up so thirsty after a night out? The consumption of alcohol causes major dehydration by inhibiting the production of the body’s antidiuretic hormone – a hormone which is used by the body to reabsorb water. The key point here is that dehydration will definitely slow down your metabolism.
