3 Reasons People Choose to Cut Back on Alcohol

  1. It is making them fat.

In a large as-yet unpublished study of more than 28,000 middle-aged men and women in Eastern Europe, Martin Bobak, MD, PhD, professor of epidemiology at University College London, found that men who drank 100 grams of alcohol (about seven drinks) and women who drank more than 60 grams (about four drinks) on one “drinking occasion” at least once a month had larger waists than did moderate drinkers.

2. It is interfering with their fitness routine.

Drink in moderation during maintenance. For lifelong weight maintenance and a healthy lifestyle, if you drink, do so in moderation and only occasionally, such as on weekends or when you go out to dine in restaurants. Binge drinking and getting drunk has no place in a fitness lifestyle (not to mention hangovers aren’t very conducive to good workout routines). https://www.muscleandstrength.com/articles/does-drinking-alcohol-make-you-fat.html

 

  1. They worry about their long-term health.

Scientists have long noted that alcoholics aren’t as portly as you’d expect, given the staggering number of calories they consume in alcohol. Metabolic studies of chronic alcohol abusers have turned up something interesting: If you drink enough, you pass a threshold after which a certain portion of your alcohol calories are “free.” Basically, you do so much damage to your liver that it can’t efficiently process alcohol anymore and you “waste” the calories or store them in your liver, giving yourself a disease called fatty liver, which can lead to cirrhosis and death if you keep at it.

Can Hypnosis Help Me to Cut Back my Alcohol Intake?

As a certified Hypnotherapist, I have been asked this question many times. I always answer the same, “Yes, if that is what you want to do. Hypnosis only works because you want it to. I can’t hypnotize you to do anything that you don’t want to do. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.” If someone calls and asks if I can hypnotize their spouse to quit drinking, I always reply, “Only if they want to!” So yes, if you want to limit your alcohol intake because of the calorie concerns, beer belly or other health concerns, hypnotherapy works.

I had one client who was drinking two six packs of beer every night. After urging by his wife, he came to see me to help him give up drinking. I informed him that I couldn’t make him do anything that he didn’t want to do. I asked him what he wanted to do. He replied that he wanted to only drink one maybe two beers at night. On the second session, he was elated because it worked and he always stopped at two beers. It works because you want it to work!
