Continuing with the topic on alcohol: 

Unfortunately, when you’re trying to lose weight, alcohol is the enemy for a number of reasons:
1. Alcohol is really just a ton of empty calories.
2. It releases estrogen into your bloodstream, promotes fat storage, and decreases muscle growth.
3. It weakens your willpower and inhibition — one minute you're at happy hour, the next you're at the all-night diner ordering the bacon cheeseburger with fries and a vanilla shake.

Now, don't get me wrong — I LOVE my red wine, and I enjoy my mixed drinks. But those things should be enjoyed once you're in maintenance mode, not while you're trying to lose weight. If you must give in to temptation, do so with extreme caution.

Stay tune cause you don't want to miss these tips, especially in this holiday season!
