"Alcohol" - good or bad? The final chapter!


Okay . . . so today . . . let's continue talking about what the "toxic" chemical that "alcohol" produces can do to our health.


Let's dig a little deeper . . .


This toxin chemical called "acetaldehyde" is actually created by "microorganisms" during the "fermentation" process.


Remember I told you the other day . . . that "ethanol" (alcohol) and its toxins are like a "fertilizer" that makes the "bad" bacteria in our body grow fast and out of control . . . causing inflammation, illness and obesity.


Well . . . for those of you that are saying . . . "thank goodness I don't drink" . . .


I've got news for you too . . . this "fermenting" process with its toxic chemical "acetaldehyde" . . . also takes place in vinegar, yogurt and cheeses . . . just to mention a few.


With some of the "HIGHEST" levels of "acetaldehyde" being in "artificial flavors" . . . like lemon flavoring, in breads and in ripe fruits . . .


And here we go PEOPLE . . . in ground and instant "COFFEE" . . .


Oh my gosh . . . we just can't get a break . . . can we???


So, again I say . . . we need to learn how to be "mindful" with the food we consume.


Okay . . . so what about "alcohol" causing "weight gain"???


Well . . .


"Alcohol" actually "STOPS" the body from "BURNING FAT"!!!!!


You see . . . when "alcohol" is consumed . . . the body tries to get rid of "IT" . . . because it knows it's a toxin . . . so it burns the "alcohol" "FIRST" as a fuel source before the body uses anything else.


This includes "glucose" from carbohydrates or "lipids" from fats.


And . . . when the body is using "alcohol" as a primary source of energy . . . the excess "glucose" and "lipids" end up . . . as "FAT" PEOPLE!!!!!


Next up . . . "alcohol" is high in "calories" that we "can't" burn and therefore . . . gets stored in our "fat cells" also.


And with this . . . it now throws our hormones "OFF BALANCE" and we now make poor food choices and overeat.


Okay . . . so let me ask you this . . . when you drink alcohol . . . do you want to have some munchies with it???


I bet the answer is "YES"!!!!


And what happens in this process???


Well . . . the body "BURNS" the "alcohol" first . . . and puts all those "empty calorie", nutritionally VOID munchy snacks . . . in our FAT CELLS!!!


So in reality . . . other than our favorite drinks making us feel relaxed . . . and warm and fuzzy . . . I don't see anything else that benefits the body's health.


So if you want to help control your eating during the holidays . . .


STOP DRINKING SO MUCH ALCOHOL!
