Dr. Sue Decotiis - Alcohol and Weight Gain
- Not only does alcohol give you empty calories but it prevents your stomach and body from absorbing nutrients.
- Don't drink alcohol with mixers, especially premixed mixers. Make sure you have some food already in your system. Alternate in between alcoholic drinks a glass of water or club soda.
- When you drink diets tend to fail, because you feel loose and easy. That's when you go for the wings, pizza, etc.
- Moderation is important and you can always mix drinks with natural ingredients like mint and soda water.
- To Boost your metabolism you need to exercise and drinking green tea helps as well.
- Dr. Decotiis helps Bill with his Crestor and Cholesterol problem.
