If you’re on a weight-loss or health journey, you might be wondering how alcohol fits into the equation. First, you should evaluate how you drink: do you find yourself mindlessly snacking, or are you giving up on healthy habits the day after drinking? It’s also important to understand how the body metabolizes alcohol too, and you might not like the truth! But most importantly, understanding why you drink at all might help you make the decision that makes the most sense for your journey. You can always enjoy a drink or two, in moderation.
