Is drinking drowning your shot at weight loss?
Alcohol may impact the way your body processes fat – and create stress on your body.
When you drink, your body focuses on metabolizing the alcohol, which means any fat is stored as weight instead of burned. “If you have a couple of glasses of wine, just think of it as turning off fat burning,” Dr. Holly Wyatt says.
And it’s not just wine, it’s beer or booze – any kind of alcohol.
Drinking can also impact your level of cortisol. That’s a stress hormone, which contributes to weight gain, as well as depression and more.
