In this episode of Ask Abbey I'm chatting through a widely misunderstood topic as it relates to weight loss- alcohol. I explain the exact reasons that alcohol consumption may be preventing you from losing weight or improving the composition of your body (hint: it's not the reason you think it is). I chat through hunger hormones, the caloric differences between alcohol and other macronutrients, and why we want to go crazy on the junk food when we're drunk. BUT if you know me by now you know I keep it realistic af- I drink alcohol too! I'm giving you all my tips on how to incorporate alcohol into your healthy lifestyle and still reach your health and fitness goals.
