Follow @cavcore_fitness for health and wellness tips!
I’m not saying you can never drink, but you should also be aware of how it can affect your wellness goals.
Here are some things to consider about alcohol consumption:
🌭 🍕Often leads to poor choices:
Alcohol stimulates the part of your brain that controls hunger and thirst cues, so it can make you feel hungry.
You’re probably not likely to reach for a plate of veggies during your drunken munchies.🍟
🚨Alcohol is full of empty calories:
A drink can run you between 100 and 300 calories a pop, and that can add up very quickly.📈
You could be using using those calories to get nutrients from food.
😓Put’s stress on your liver:
We all know that alcohol isn’t great for your liver.
The alcohol in your blood has to be processed by your liver.
Each time your liver processes alcohol, some of your liver cells die, and it takes time for them to regenerate.
😴Can negatively impact sleep:
Alcohol may make you sleepy, but it affects the quality of your sleep.
Alcohol has also been shown to make sleeping disorders like insomnia worse.
Studies have also shown that you’re less able to focus on daily tasks after a night of drinking.
🏋️♂️Can impair workout recovery:
Drinking dampens the hormones that are important for muscle repair and recovery. It also impairs your body’s ability to rehydrate your muscles during the repair process.
All in all, life is about everything in moderation but we should be aware about the impact of our choices. Here’s to continued health and wellness!🥂
