The Surprise Health Benefits of Giving Up Booze For Just Two Weeks!

Summer sunshine is always an invitation for poolside margaritas, patio sangrias, beers by the bonfire... But even if you're just having a few boozy drinks, the damage to your health can be just as significant as if you were pounding back shot after shot. Consistant drinking (those couple of margaritas by the pool every night) can lead to liver damage, ulcers and pancreas problems. If this isn't the wake up call you need to skimp out on the cocktails for even a few weeks, read on to find out the benefits of locking up the booze: Weight Loss Many summery drinks are sugar-loaded and can pack on pounds or leave you at a plateau. Alcohol can also hinder your muscle development even if you work out daily. You'll see an increase in energy after giving up alcohol which can help you train longer and harder. Better Sleep Alcohol can lead to sleeping problems as it doesn't allow your body to enter a deeper realm of sleep. You'll wake groggy and tired after a night of drinking, but refreshed and focused after a sober sleep. Radiant Skin Alcohol literally sucks the moisture out of your skin and leaves it dehydrated. This can cause premature aging. Cutting out booze leaves your skin glowing, fresh and soft. What are some sober summer activities that you enjoy? What has cutting down on booze done for your life?
