Beer is one of the highest-calorie beverages in existence, making it detrimental to fast weight loss with Phentermine 37.5mg. To help you make smart alcoholic beverage choices, review some of the worst beer habits to be aware of.
Eating Junk Food
Enjoying junk food with beer is a favorite pastime for many, but one that contributes to weight gain.
“One thing about beer is that the more you drink it, the less you care about what you eat! Before long you have taken in calories from beer, chips, queso, wings, and who knows what else! Beer alone provides calories that can derail weight loss, but additional junk food calories might add insult to injury if you do this multiple times a week,” says Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD.
Drinking “Only On Weekends”
While limiting your drinking to weekends can be helpful, it can also spell disaster in terms of weight loss.
“Many people say they will ‘just’ drink on the weekends when they are attempting to lose weight, but oftentimes that leaves them going overboard once they finally reach Friday night! Too many calories at one time can be just as bad as calories spread out. If you don’t drink all week, but then take in an exuberant amount on the weekend, it too might derail your weight loss,” says Goodson.
Imbibing On An Empty Stomach
Drinking on an empty stomach is never recommended.
“Drinking beer without eating food first can make you feel the alcohol effects quicker, which can lower inhibitions and result in making unhealthy food choices later in the day. You are better off eating a balanced meal before or with your beer,” says Lauren Manaker, MS, RDN.
