Whether you enjoy beer, wine or spirits, the alcohol you take in naturally results in more sugar entering your system. Some people really struggle with their weight even when they eat exceptionally healthily because their alcohol intake is too high and it takes them over their recommended daily amount of calories.
It is not necessary to cut alcohol out altogether. All you need to do is stop drinking every day according to habit. Some people enjoy a good deal of success when they drink only at weekends. This approach means that you are still able to drink alcohol as a treat, but you are not allowing it to make you put on extra weight when you are trying to achieve weight loss.
