We have all heard the studies: drinking alcohol usually leads to weight gain due to the high amount of sugar found in most wineand spirits. For people who are trying to lose weight, or to keep their blood sugar levels from swinging wildly, it is usually recommended that one avoids imbibing unnecessary calories. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, new evidence comes along that provides an exception to a very well known rule.
One of the significant problems with alcohol is that most drinks are full of sugar. Not only do these cause dramatic spikes and falls in blood sugar (which can contribute to weight gain and difficulty losing weight), it has also been shown that drinking increases the chance of overeating and choosing unhealthy food choices. How many people love to go out for a nice greasy burger and fries after a night at the bar? It is these things that make alcohol such a detriment to those trying to lose weight.
