"To maintain instead of gaining the "Holiday 7" during New Year's...Keep alcohol to a limit. 1 serving of alcohol slows your metabolism down for 24 hours after drinking it. (One serving = 1 beer, 1 glass of wine, or 1 mixed drink.)...
If you think about it...consumption of alcohol slows down your reflexes, your muscles, your speech, your thinking...why wouldn't it slow down your fat burning process?
(Just something to keep in mind while bringing in the New Year! )
Bring in the New Year by maintaining your weight...
This will create less or no work to do later...in January!"
