alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet

After the Thanksgiving Day, we are about to deal with the Christmas and New Year season, not to mention dealing with several office, and Christmas reunion parties while we are on the fast metabolism diet. It is no doubt that we can’t help but feel anxious when  the temptation is at its highest point. Not only foods are its highest level of temptation, but drinks too. These holiday seasons may not be complete without having a drink or two with our fellow friends and relatives. How do we deal with avoiding these alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet?

We all know that alcohol is like coffee, it is one of the great metabolism killers. Not only it slows down or worst, kill our metabolism, but also it destroys our liver. The Fast metabolism diet’s goal is for our 5 great organ players to digest foods and heal our metabolism. We certainly can’t have them wasting time on digesting these metabolism killers. If possible, avoiding drinking alcoholic wine may seem to be the safest and the best option. But for those who certainly can’t give up drinking yet, here are the tips on how to deal with alcoholic drinks while on the fast metabolism diet.

Drink at least 8 ounces of water.

For every glass of wine or mixed drink you drink, you need to balance it by drinking at least 8 ounces of water to process the alcohol in your liver quickly. It will also help to cleanse your body and minimize its intoxicating effects. You can also add lime juice (juice of a whole lime) to your water. It has more vitamin A than lemon and this Vitamin can help your liver process the alcohol quickly.

Choose organic, sulfite-free red wine

This wine is your best option to drink during these holiday season because it has the least intoxicating effect on your liquor.

Choose Rum, Vodka and other top shelf liquor.

These drinks are generally cleaner than other liquors since they have the least content of added chemicals and fake ingredients.

Choose good quality of mixers.

Be aware that some mixers are full of fake ingredients like tonic water (that contains sugar) and fake flavorings. Make sure that the juices used in the mixers are fresh. Avoid mixing up sodas and energy drinks.

Never drink beer.

Drinking beer is never an option in the fast metabolism diet. It has more carbohydrates that is difficult to digest, thus shutting down your metabolism.

Eat your phased-specific meals before planning on drinking.

Follow the routine of eating every 2-3 hours per day. It is recommended to eat protein-filled meal and snacks before planning on drinking. You can eat meatballs, raw nuts. Protein-filled snacks and meals can help control the delivery of sugar to your bloodstream.

Detoxify your liver.

After drinking from the holiday season, it is important to detoxify your liver from the toxic it digested from the last night. Drink extra water to cleanse your body. You can also cook a cleansing soup (Liver-detox broth) that is great for your liver and adrenals. Drink 1-3 cups thrice (breakfast, lunch and dinner) during the next day.

Read more to know about how you can handle the Christmas and holiday season with ease and without worrying your diet!

  1. Don’t shut your metabolism. Keep it going.

Sometimes, when we think of holidays, they’re all about food. Let’s say tomorrow is Christmas day, and we decide to drown ourselves with hunger tonight to have an empty stomach for the coming big celebration, which is a bad idea. How did it became a bad idea? Well, since you’re hungry, you’re going to eat a lot more than how much your stomach can only intake. You’re torturing your tummy. You should eat five times per day, that includes three healthy meals and two protein-based snacks every day, and keep it going to the holidays. You’re going to be needing this to keep your blood sugar normal and metabolism stable. Just so the holiday foods can be as prepared as you to be thrown in to your stomach without worrying about your metabolism.

2.Be prepared and do not be alarmed that there’s going to be a holiday!

Keep your stress hormones calmed when going to a holiday celebration, but how? By filling your tummy beforehand the right way. It’s just the way it is. And there’s also a fact. You’re going to avoid craving for food if you’re feeding your body the foods it need to keep your metabolism burning!

  1. Ask yourself: To drink or not to drink just one?

Actually, you can just have clear liquors namely rum, vodka and gin since they are cleaner. They contain less chemicals and fake ingredients. BUT, still know that alcohol is VERY dehydrating. Better to drink eight ounces of spring water for every intake of drink. If you couldn’t help yourself drinking wine or liquor, just stick to the organic, sulfire-free wine.

  1. No to beer. I insist.

Considered also as liquid bread, but be reminded that you don’t want to shut your metabolism. It is because beer is about carbohydrates- it has more carbohydrates than wine or liquor. Remain loyal to your banner- “Less carb diet” or strongly “No carb diet”.

  1. Have more of protein-heavy foods.

Eat 10 to 15 grams of protein every two hours. Don’t think that this is exhausting, think that this is for your own body to be prepared from the thought that you’ll be eating a lot. Protein rich foods can be turkey jerky, deviled eggs, hummus and veggies, cold cuts, or shrimp cocktail. Aim this! You’ll be glad that by doing this, your metabolism will be told that it’s time to get into the high gear. Retain to your mind that your body can handle anything as long as your metabolism is ready for it.

  1. Choose homemade sweets more. They are made with love.

Let us count the differences of your goodies bought from stores from my sweets made at home. First, your store-bought goodies are processed and contain many artificial ingredients, while my homemade sweets are healthier and they metabolize faster- and they’re made with love. Right? Second, I think the first one is already enough.

  1. Like Live, Laugh, Love, Mine is Eat, Drink, Be Merry.

When eating, one must accompany it with enjoyment. Know that this releases feel-good endorphins, which in turn signals your thyroid to release fat-burning hormones and also causes the decrease of another hormone- leptin. This turn of healthy hormone chain of events will excite your body to release stored fat for fuel helping you to feel full and keep you to overeat.

Christmas holiday season is meant for us to celebrate and enjoy these occasions. We can’t have ourselves constantly worrying and dreading these events just because it might sabotage our diet. Follow these fast metabolism diet holiday tips and enjoy the holiday season! Merry Christmas to everyone!
