Looking for the skinny on weight loss tips? How about some tips on drinking responsibly and controlling your weight? Pay attention... There’s nothing wrong with imbibing a bit, but too much of the sauce can show up on the scale. Here’s the deal: Your body cannot save calories from alcohol like it does with food, so while you’re throwing back the booze, you’re not burning any additional calories. The calories from your last meal will be stored as fat, thus ruining your weight loss regimen. It gets worse. Studies show the fat burn is especially decreased in your midsection - hence, ‘beer belly’. Let’s also remember that the decisions we make when you've had a few too many aren't exactly stellar. This is because alcohol reduces glucose in your brain and body which impairs your self-control. Think late night orders for pizza, polishing off a box of crackers, calling your ex. Combine this with an energy sucking hangover and you've put your metabolism on hold. Does this mean you have to swear off booze forever? Not in the least. In fact, studies show that people who drink moderately (1-2 glasses for women, 2-3 for men) put on less weight over time. The key is to be mindful of what you drink.
