Put Down the Cocktail - Pick Up the Fat Burn

By Dr. Jerry Mixon July 22, 2013

Alcohol is a potent metabolic poison that makes you fat. While many enjoy the occasional glass of wine with dinner, or an evening cocktail, most people don’t realize the impact that this has on their weight.

As long as there is any alcohol in your system your liver puts aside other tasks, such as carbohydrate metabolism to pay attention to getting rid of the alcohol. The result is that virtually every calorie that comes through the liver in any form gets rapidly turned into fat, so the liver can give its full attention to burning the alcohol.

From a practical standpoint, this means that as long as you have any alcohol in your bloodstream, you are making fat rather than burning it. Over time, those few extra hours of fat production every day result in a significant increase in your weight.

If you’re serious about losing weight, the first thing you need to do is take alcohol out of your diet.
