Tip #2 – Think before you drink!

I know it’s the weekend and you are ready to go hang out with friends and grab a couple of drinks, but keep this in mind – Alcohol is Calorie-Dense! There are seven calories per gram of alcohol and because it contains no nutrients you consume only empty calories every time you drink! So if fat-loss is what you are after or you are just trying to develop healthier habits take it easy with the drinking. On the weekend as well as during the week!
