Episode #16 in the Motivation Assist Podcast series is How To Manage Alcohol This Christmas

This podcast presents 5 reasons to drink less this Christmas and provides support on how to do it.

The party season is well and truly upon is and it means a lot of eating, celebrating and drinking.

What is important is that you take a moment to think about the role you want alcohol to play this Christmas (and New Year) and more importantly, how to manage alcohol this Christmas.

Here are the 5 reasons to drink less this Christmas:

1. Weight maintenance and control is going to be much easier.

Please watch out for every-day drinking as it will increase your appetite. The problem with alcohol is that it interferes with the way the body burns fat. When you take a drink the body stops using fat for energy and uses alcohol instead

2. Better health and better skin.

Alcohol is a diuretic meaning that it causes water loss and dehydration. Alcohol also robs your skin if important B vitamins, folic acid and zinc.

3. Better connections with those around you.

It is false to say that conversations are more meaningful when you consume alcohol. One’s ability to recall ‘meaningful’ conversations is severely impaired when consuming alcohol.

4. Better sleep.

When you drink alcohol, you don’t go into REM or deep quality sleep. Not getting enough rest triggers cravings and likelihood of eating more calories the following day.

5. Your mental health is going to improve.

Fact, alcohol is a depressant and without it, mental health improves.

Many people who attempt to lose weight forget one major factor, drinks contain calories. When monitoring your calorie intake many people just think of food, but alcohol, as well as other drinks such as sodas, fruit juice etc. all contain calories, and a lot more than you would probably think. One glass of white wine can contain up to 100 calories and some cocktails can round up to a shocking 600 calories.
