Whether you’re a seasoned or a lightweight drinker, non-alcoholic drinks are catching on. As you are aware with our program, no alcohol is allowed. So this can make you feel a little left out. However, there are tons of beverage recipes that are HCG friendly and make your braai fun and guilt free.
Alcohol is not recommended while you are on HCG diet. In fact, Dr.Simeons does mention about it in his manuscript. “If no carbohydrates whatsoever are eaten, fats can be indulged in somewhat more liberally and even small quantities of alcohol, such as a glass of wine with meals does no harm. But as soon as fats and starch are combined things are very liable to get out of hand”.
Reasons why you should avoid alcohol
Alcohol is high in calories
One reason why you should avoid drinking alcoholic
beverages is that alcohol is basically high in calories. It may add too many
calories to your hcg diet. Not only it is extremely high in calories (which
contain about 7 calories per gram for beer), over-consumption can be taxing to
your liver too.
Alcohols can stimulate your appetite
Alcohol can stimulate your appetite making your
portion control difficult. At the same time making you hungrier. Being hungry
and less able to control yourself is even more dangerous.
Drinking alcohol is accompanied by eating bad snacks
Alcohol can make you want to eat bad snacks that
are not allowed on HCG diet. Examples of bad snacks are salty and fatty foods.
Alcohol can stop your body from burning fats. Instead of your regular meal intake, your body will use the alcohol as a source of fuel. As this will happen, the protein and carbs from the foods you ate will turn into fats.
Alcohol cause poor sleep A small amount of alcohol can make you sleepy. But too much can cause poor sleeping. Thus, contributing to weight gain.
