If you want to lose belly fat, ditch the alcohol*. Containing a dangerously high amount of calories (7 calories per gram), alcohol causes you to collect fat specifically on your abdomen. Besides, it also affects metabolism as your body will put all other metabolic processes on hold until it has processed alcohol because of its toxicity. As your body can’t convert the calories from the alcohol to fat, it needs to use them up, and this delays all other fat burning and energy use until the alcohol has been processed*.
Therefore, it is important to reduce your alcohol intake if you want to lose your belly fat*. Not only is alcohol filled with calories, drinking too much of it dehydrates the skin, making you look older than your age*
