Yesterday I stumbled onto this article from that outlines a few simple ways to minimize the effects alcohol has on your waistline. The article suggests 5 pretty straight forward ways you can mitigate the empty calories that come along with drinking beer, wine, or booze. Although the article’s title, “How to Drink More Alcohol and Lose Weight” seems a little deceptive, since it offers almost no advice that would lead to actual weight loss, it’s still hard to argue that being slightly overweight isn’t better than being totally overweight.
