Is It Time To Go On A DRIET?

December 03, 2015 2 min read

Coming home from a long, hard day of work and unwinding with a glass of wine is blissful. But, sometimes, that one glass can lead to two. If you find this is often the case in your house, it may be time to consider a 'driet.' A driet is a diet from drinking. NHS guidlines say that women should drink no more than two to three units a week, the equivalent of a 175ml glass of wine, and men should not drink more than three to four units, the equivalent to a pint and a half of four per cent beer. Unfortunately, some estimates state that 52% of men and 53% of women drink more than these recommended totals. Drinking too much can have a seriously negative impact on your health including an increase in anxiety and depression, thread veins, brittle nails, dry hair, weight gain and a weakened immune system. Have a look at this infographic for more details: 2EEF94AC00000578-0-image-m-2_1448903505163 [bctt tweet="Is It Time To Go On A DRIET?"] "In the same way that people watch their calories and go on a food diet when they want to lose weight or improve their overall health, the driet works the same way but with a specific focus on alcoholic drinks," explains the Driet Team. "It challenges you to think about the number of alcoholic drinks you consume (as well as their strength) to help you cut down your alcohol intake and reap the potential numerous health benefits, which include weight loss, better skin and increased energy." This movement comes hot on the heels of increased research and evidence linking alcohol consumption to increased cancer risks. Aside from all the serious health risks, we know that drinking alcohol can spell disaster for our weight loss efforts. The more you think about it, and the closer you look at it, is grabbing an 'adult' beverage really the best way to unwind? Wouldn't going for a walk or doing some mediation be better for your health across the board? What do you think? Do you think you need to reduce your alcohol consumption? Source: Daily Mail
