It’s the season to be jolly and excess is all around. We believe a life in balance has everything in moderation. However some of you are on very specific journey’s so bear in mind that at 7kcal per gram excess alcohol will be stored as fat.
It takes 1 hour approximately for 1 unit of alcohol to be processed out of your body. A 125ml glass of wine is between 1.5 units and 1.8 units (12-14% alcohol) so this will take 1.5 to almost 2 hours to leave your body. Aim to drink a small glass of water in between your alcoholic drinks. Please remember : the government advises that people should not regularly drink more than the lower risk guidelines of 3-4 units of alcohol for men (equivalent to a pint and a half of 4% beer) and 2-3 units of alcohol for women (equivalent to a 175 ml glass of wine) ‘Regularly’ means drinking every day or most days of the week.
We hope the Drinkaware measure cup and calculator are of help. As current clients attending sessions this week please take a cup and calculator and if you have children in your family one of the books and app cards too.
Fun can be had – just don’t undo all the good work you have done in 50 weeks over the next two! More information about the effects of alcohol can be found on the Drinkaware site https://www.drinkaware.co.uk/
