What To Know About Drinking & Fat Loss

Updated: Apr 1



Our friend Nick Andrus wanted us to talk about alcohol and fat loss, so here we go! โฃ

โฃ

As normal functioning humans, most of us desire some sort of altered consciousness. Itโ€™s intrinsic and persisted for most of evolution. As talked about yesterday โ€” alcohol seems to be the only acceptable way to get high without being socially ostracized, so of course this is a topic everyone has questions about. โฃ

โฃ

Alcohol impacts fat loss through both direct and indirect mechanisms.โฃ

Basically, the body focuses on detoxing the alcohol rather than using other nutrients as an energy source, so you have a greater partitioning of calories to fat stores and a greater rate of fat synthesis.โฃ

โฃ

It acts directly on fat cells to reduce the secretion of leptin, which in turn stimulates appetite and motivates us to eat more food. โฃ

โฃ

It also shuts down our prefrontal cortex, which is in charge of executive functioning, and therefore increases our ๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด. โฃ

โฃ

For all the nutrition and fit pros that are more stringent with their diets, that usually translates into more junk food consumption when imbibing. โฃ

โฃ

When you lift the brakes up by drinking a substance that puts our ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ป๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ brain in control, you bet your ass things are going to go sideways quicklike. Survival is your primary focus when the prefrontal cortex is shut down. Most donโ€™t actually desire what excessive hedonism provides, yet they do it anyways when they drink. What does that tell you? Individuals often utilize EtOH as a license to โ€œ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฆโ€ and engage in the hedonism they know wrecks their goals. โฃ
