Alcohol Can Undermine Your Weight-Loss Efforts

If your social life is on the upswing and you find yourself having a few more cocktails than usual, it could be working against your efforts to lose weight.

Alcohol can add hundreds of calories to your daily total, often making the difference between weight loss, maintenance or gain. For example, one glass of beer or wine can contain at least 100 calories.

So if you’re having a couple of drinks with your cronies a few nights a week, you could be adding 1,000 unexpected calories to your diet. Also, alcohol acts as an appetite stimulant, and thus can lead you to indulge in foods that aren’t consistent with your weight-loss plan.

So, if you’re dieting, keeping your alcohol intake to a minimum can help you keep your eating habits on track.
