Literally less than 3 weeks difference between these pictures and I honestly think that cutting out alcohol has helped massively.
Alcohol is actually the 4th macronutrient but unlike carbs, proteins and fats, it provides no nutrition - hence being referred to has having empty calories. When you drink alcohol it is the first fuel to be used which essentially postpones the fat burning process causing excess fat to be stored.
I wasn't drinking alot anyway, but I felt like I was it was holding me back with regards to progress. So I've done 4 weeks without alcohol and have another 4 weeks to go until I go on holiday. It's definitely a sacrifice but one I'm willing to make to get where I want to be 👊
