Can Alcohol be Part of a Healthy Diet?
Will it matter that much if I drink?
The question of drinking alcohol or not comes up a lot, and many of my clients wonder if alcohol should be totally off limits.
In this video, I discuss why the answer depends on what you’re drinking, how much, and what you’re mixing it with, to help you find the right balance for your lifestyle and goals. I also reveal why the alcohol itself is the problem, and how compared to protein, carbohydrates and fat, it’s on the higher end of containing calories per gram.
As a contributor to belly fat, I review how and why it also hinders performance and recovery time.
Watch to learn about:
- What you’re drinking: the 3 major types of alcohol; wine, beer and liquor, the calories contained in each drink per ounce, and a handy tip to measure what a 5 oz. glass of wine is.
