Alcohol isn't THAT bad!

When working towards a healthier diet, cutting vices like alcohol is often one of the first steps. We've all heard of a "beer belly", and none of us want one.

Whilst excessive binge drinking is obviously extremely harmful to both yourself, those around you, and society as a whole, the occasional drink isn't as clear cut. In fact, drinking a little alcohol in moderation has many health benefits. In general, the weight gain associated with those who regularly consume alcohol is actually caused by associated factors, not the alcohol itself. For example, an increased likelihood to consume takeaways, pub food, and other high calorie foods. Additionally, the weight gain from alcohol isn't confirmed yet, despite many large studies on the subject.

So, don't worry about the occasional beer at the weekend, it's probably doing you good!
