🍻 ALCOHOL & FITNESS 💪🏼 We love training and eating for fitness and health related goals, but we do all still drink regularly in moderation, and also socially, in slightly less moderation…

So, what’s the deal with drinking and building muscle or losing fat? Can you regularly drink and be a fully-fledged gym king or queen?

We think you most certainly can (to a degree). When drinking in moderation and regularly, we would always recommend tracking calories consumed through alcohol and mixers. And we would always recommend having alcohol-free days at least 2-3 times per week. Beyond that, the negative effect of alcohol will be incredibly minimal when calories, sleep and training are all equated to an alcohol-free individual.

When it comes to getting absolutely hammered, things change a little.

When getting bladdered you will likely have an influx of calories beyond your usual amount, and poor-quality nutrition following that. A calorie surplus and nutrient-sparse diet is not an ideal combination to create on a regular basis. High blood-alcohol levels can also affect fat-burning and hormone balance in the body for a period.

In a more basic and visual sense, the hangover lessens the likelihood of training the next day (and the day after that sometimes!), and generally increases the likelihood of a poor diet the day after drinking. It also makes you less productive in the days following, which can throw out the entire week, and reduce the time you can attribute to training and food prep.

So, we would recommend being sensible with alcohol. And suggest attempting to have a realistic game-plan in place for the next day to keep you on track. Something like a rest day and implementation of intermittent fasting following an event like a wedding or birthday night out would be a good move.

Ultimately boozing is your decision. We don’t believe getting hammered multiple times per week is sensible or advisable, but do not feel every food group that isn’t an avocado or aloe vera juice should be cut out.

Hope you've had a good weekend ladies & gents!
