The reason why I stopped sharing how to fit alcohol in your macros,
is because yes, you CAN fit a drink into your macros, maybe even 2, during a dieting phase.
And if you want to do that once every few weeks hangin with the girls then by all means get after it 💃🏼
But here’s the tea:
Binge drinking causes weight GAIN because
🤪it’s a HIGH amount of calories at one time & stops your body from breaking down the food already in your system causing fat storage,
🤪makes you more fatigued for your workouts,
🤪makes you dehydrated which causes weak muscles
🤪can cause impaired sleep which highly impacts weight loss….etc.
Carbohydrates on the other hand…
🥳do not do any of that shit.
Carbohydrates are essential for MOST people to be able to LOSE weight because
🧇they give you energy to fuel your workouts,
🧇help you recover better from those workouts
🧇contain fiber so….💩
🧇make you happy which helps adherence to a calorie deficit to successfully lose weight.
So, while yes I personally DO drink, I think it’s insanely important to understand that saying you’re “cutting carbs” to lose weight but are still drinking alcohol is COMPLETELY missing the entire point & keeping you stuck in a plateau 🙅🏼♀️
TLDR: eat your carbs and focus on total caloric intake for weight loss (which includes the booze 🤪) 🙏🏻
