Is Alcohol all it has been cracked up to be? Lets take a look.

Toxin? Check. Drug? Check. Metabolism Depressor? Check. Depression Creator? Health and Life Destroyer? Check.

Liquor is a drug, and it will stagnate, if not stall, all attempts in improving your health, body, and vitality.

I know, I know, I have seen the supposed studies that red wine, in moderation, can be beneficial for your heart, or even your stress levels. Well, let me put it this way, alcohol is a drug, which makes it a toxin, which means, it tears your body down. It does NOT build you up! So, am I saying “NO DRINKING!”?

No, I am saying lets get the facts straight. Alcohol plays all sorts of havoc on your hormonal system, liver, sugar levels, and your ability to burn fat. Your body will not burn body-fat if you have alcohol in your blood stream. You need to know that. 

Let me ask you a few questions:

Do you believe an exceptionally executed workout will cancel out half a bottle of wine?

Do you find yourself feeling more and more depressed than normal, even though you are still drinking the same amounts?

Do you drink before you go to bed, and you can’t seem to sleep through the night?

Are you finding that you are have to drink more and more to have the same medicinal effects?

If you have found that you said yes to a number of the questions above, therein could be the major problem to you not achieving excellent results.

Things to do:

View Wine, Beer, and Spirits as drugs, because they are!

Understand your chances of dropping body-fat when you drink everyday is beyond slim.

If stressed, replace your liquor consumption with a beneficial stress management technique.

If you find yourself drinking wine because it is supposedly heart healthy, replace the booze intake with high quality fruits and vegetables that are loaded nutrients, and anti-oxidants, but without the side-effects.

I am not a huge fan of The Donald, as in Mr. “You’re Hired/You’re Fired”, or just Donald Trump to most of you. But I can’t get the answer he gave to the question of why he does NOT drink out of my head. He made it perfectly clear that he doesn’t drink because he has seen how many of his friends’ lives have been ruined, if not lost. Strong words indeed!
