Alcohol is the worst for you. It slows down your metabolism by 30% because your body’s consuming the alcohol and that’s the first thing that it takes to burn. So if you eat a huge dinner and you have 2 glasses of red wine, it’s going to take 4 hours to burn off the glass of red wine. Because the alcohol is fermented, it slows down to metabolize in general.
If you eat 1,000 calories a day and you have 2 glasses of wine it’s like your eating 2,000 calories. You know when you have a hangover the next day and you feel like crap and you want to eat greasy foods. It really messes up your metabolism. Once you’re able to reset your metabolism into your body, you can slowly introduce alcohol back into your diet.
