We all know alcohol is an indulgence. If we drank it like water all day long, you can bet our health would deplete in no time. But what about just a couple cocktails on a Friday night? While letting loose and allowing yourself to enjoy a good buzz feels good, it doesn't exactly coincide with weight loss goals, and not necessarily because of the alcohol itself. While a rum punch is a surefire way to pack down excess amount of sugar, other options like vodka and soda seem like a much safer route. And while one comes in at just 100 calories, it's the impaired judgement that may cause you to consume more calories than that. A new study published in the journal Obesity took a look at what happens after alcohol consumption, specifically the brain’s role in mediating caloric intake. To examine this, researchers had a group of women consume alcohol via an IV, while another group was given a placebo. The discovery is what many of us probably would have expected: those subjects who ingested the alcohol ate more food at their next meal than those who were given the placebo. Scientists call this the “apéritif effect.” So while sloshing a few back seems like a good idea at the time, if you're looking to slim down, your best bet is to opt out of alcohol consumption altogether. What do you think of these findings? Source: Iron Man Magazine
