Alcohol

Alcohol does have a high number of calories, but is that really the worst part? 

The effects of alcohol on your liver also play effect your health and your weight loss journey. 

Kate explains why...

How alcohol impacts your weight loss

What impact does alcohol consumption have on your diet?

Alcohol contains unwanted calories and carbohydrates with little or no nutritional benefit.

Alcohol consumption can also cause you to transition out of nutritional ketosis, which can inhibit weight loss and subsequent fat burning for at least 72 hours.

When people drink, they also tend to nibble on fatty foods such as cheese, crackers or chocolate. Alcohol consumption can also interrupt sleep and exercise patterns, further contributing to poor weight loss outcomes.

Eating Out

It's ok to eat out! 

Kate talks us though healthy options when eating out so we don't stray too far from our program! 

And just remember the closer you follow the program, the greater your results!

Healthy menu items when eating out

If you want to see results, it’s important to do your best to stick to your program.

That said, you shouldn’t have to miss out on special occasions and social events, which very often involve some form of eating out.

Luckily, with a little foresight, you can have your treat and eat it too! By having an idea of what’s likely to be on the menu beforehand and having a plan in mind, you’ll be in a good position to make sensible choices that won’t wipe out all your hard work.
