Can you enjoy a drink and still lose weight?

Okay, girl, listen up. I know you love your wine. Hell, if you are like me you love your tequila. I also know that your favorite fitspo is telling you that you shouldn’t be drinking alcohol if you want to lose weight.

WELL. It is time I became your favorite fitspo because I am here to tell you that you can enjoy your favorite alcoholic drink without sacrificing your weight loss results.

Now, there is some more information to consider.

Back in college I was drinking 2-3 nights a week (and I was enjoying more than a couple drinks… lol). What I found from this lifestyle is….

  1. When I go out to drink I LOVE to eat fast food. Typically I can resist but after a few drinks I am hitting that drive thru and getting all the things and eating it at 3am…. yeah, gross, right?
  2. The morning after a night of drinking leads to one of two things… I am either dragging ass and not getting to the gym at all OR I am getting to the gym (still dragging ass) but hardly working out at all

I realized this was holding me back from hitting my health and fitness goals, so I made a decision to put the drinking on hold. I did stop drinking completely for a time. In the last year I have started drinking again, but I try to limit my drinking to 1-2 drinks total per week, but on average I am drinking every other week. (I also skip the drinking because I prefer to drive)

This is the same philosophy I take with my clients. I do NOT restrict my clients and tell them to never drink.

The key to drinking without sacrificing your results is MODERATION – in frequency and amount.

You can do the same thing, friend. Unless there is an underlying issue with addiction, you can most certainly enjoy your favorite wine and still lose weight.


**If you do have an underlying issue or concern with alcohol, you should 100% abstain from alcohol and drugs.
