I am more than sure that I will not be mistaken if I say that it is extremely hard to quit things that we like pretty much and adore. Actually, I would like to talk today about alcohol which has become an integral part of people’s lives and which helps people to relax after the hard working day. Besides, I would like to point out that alcohol facilitates people to interact and socialize with each other. However, when a person decides to lose weight and seriously takes some actions in this direction, she or he should understand and realize that alcohol is not the best friend in this case. The thing is that it is able to cause various side effects during the weight loss procedure. In addition, even if you take it in small dozes when you are on the diet, you have to get it right that alcohol holds you back from reaching your goal and from making your body attractive. In order to persuade you to get rid of the habit of drinking alcohol, I am going to determine few bad features that each alcoholic drink possesses.
1) Slows your metabolism immediately
In fact, the most dangerous side effect of alcohol is its ability to slow your metabolism down which leads to the worse digestion and to hardships with burning fat. Actually, this can be the greatest problem when you see many people who after their workouts drink a glass of beer being happy with their progress. However, they do not even suspect this beer of the “negative influence” and do not know that their workout was spent in vain. As far as alcohol can last in our organism about 24 or 48 hours, this slows our metabolism. That is why it is extremely important not to take alcohol when you are exercising.
2) Reduces motivation
It is not a secret that alcohol can make us feel great and as we drink more, alcohol gets quicker into our blood and it begins to sedate us decreasing our inhibitions and making it pretty difficult for us to consume healthy food and make healthy decisions. Indeed, one big night on the booze is enough for your body to store extra unnecessary fat and be in a state of regretting taking such dull actions.
3) Less of the male hormone testosterone
I must admit that there should be a strong control in drinking and the amount you take should correspond to your status and strengths. Interestingly, I like very popular saying concerning this situation which sounds like: “the more alcohol you drink the more feminine you are becoming”. In spite of the fact that it sounds funny, it is true.
