When mentioned, the word "Alcohol" conjures up many a conversation, and most people associate it with fun, letting their hair down and parties! The good news is that on The Celebrity Slim Program, a glass of dry white or red wine can be enjoyed up to 2-3 days per week. Your body treats alcohol like a carbohydrate though, so the more alcohol you drink the less fat you lose.
Every time alcohol is drunk, a diuretic effect occurs in the body, which in turn expels vital vitamins and minerals, especially B-group vitamins that keep your nervous system, hormone production, hair and nails in good shape.
Alcohol also places an enormous strain on the liver, which reduces its ability to detoxify the body. Over consumption of alcohol can lead to fatigue and dehydration, as well as disruptive sleep patterns, and can deplete many vital nutrients from the body.
Here are our suggestions when consuming alcohol:
- For every alcoholic drink, make sure you have a non-alcoholic one (preferably water) in between.
- Generally drink more water as alcohol severely dehydrates the body.
- Always choose a diet mixer with any spirit.
- Fill your glass with before adding alcohol.
- Dry white wines contain less sugar than other options such as Rose.
