Drinking Alcohol While Staying Healthy

The majority of adults enjoy a regular drink, and for many of us alcohol is a part of our routine that we may have stopped thinking about too hard. It’s easy to forget that alcohol is a drug, and alcoholic drinks contain other harmful substances as well as plenty of calories in most cases. Drinking carelessly can seriously hinder weight loss attempts and of course it can lead to a whole host of other problems. However, we have some great ideas to help you manage your drinking and stay relatively healthy.

 

1) Don’t drink on an empty stomach

Eat a healthy meal with plenty of fibre, protein and vegetables before you start drinking alcohol and this will help your body process it in a healthy way. Not only that, but you’re less likely to be hungry later and crave fatty foods.
