Recently, I gave some info on booze and why it’s not the best for fat los/muscle building and it stirred up some controversy. I like to enjoy a glass or red wine every now and again, but guess what– it still slows progress.
If you drank 8 oz. of wine each day for a year, you could theoretically gain 21 pounds!
Sounds crazy right?
I have a quick story about a client I work with. I won’t give any names, but I want everyone to understand a few things.
When we were working together she would be doing great losing weight, toning up, and she was looking great! However, I began to notice that when she drank a few glasses of wine on a Friday or Saturday night after a busy week, she wouldn’t lose weight for almost TWO weeks afterwards! And of course with the wine came some not so perfect food choices. Now, I’m not trying to say that you should never drink alcohol ever again, but you should drink in moderation, especially if you have fitness/health goals!
If you are currently working on losing weight and you choose to indulge a little bit, be prepared to potentially not see the scale go down that week. For a rare few it will, but often times it is due to dehydration.
This doesn’t mean you need to hold off on your weight loss plans or bring them to a halt. It means be aware and be prepared. I want to share My Seven Tips I used with my client to help reach her goal!
