The weekend has finally arrived, so It's about that time again to remind you about Fat burning & alcohol, you know daily alcohol consumption will slow or stop your results, the drawbacks are probably going to far outweigh any health benefits.
That means that as long as there's alcohol in your system you won't be burning any body fat. If you have one or two drinks, you might stall your fat loss for a few hours. If you have quite a few drinks, it might be as long as four days before you're metabolizing fat again".
So let's recap those calories...
Carbohydrates and Proteins have 4 calories per gram. Fat has 9 calories per gram. Alcohol has 7 calories per gram.
Remember you don't burn any calories from Fat if you have alcohol in your body, zip, zilch, zero, none!.
Drinking also dehydrates you, raises cortisol levels (goodbye muscles), raises estrogen levels (hello hips), lowers inhibitions (pizza anyone?).
Combine that with the fact that alcohol promotes abdominal fat storage (of all places!) and it's really not worth it, not even on free day, not if you're serious about making a major transformation.
