Stop Drinking Lose Weight And Look Younger

Another illusion of alcohol addiction is the transference of beauty.

How many people wake up on a Sunday morning lying next to a dog ugly stranger, wondering where the stunning goddess or Greek Adonis they met the night before went to?

I am sure nothing so unsavoury has ever happened to you but rest assured, beer has been helping ugly people to have sex for hundreds of years – God bless it!

By now I hope you can see why I compare alcohol to some twisted magician.

This substance, that we adamantly insist is nothing more than a social pleasantry can make us believe things have vanished before our eyes.

It can steal our money without detection, age us horribly, make us see things that are not there at all and even makes us believe someone who looks like Kathy Bates is a gorgeous catwalk model who must be seduced!

The Ugly Stick

Alcohol may make people appear to be significantly more attractive than they really are but while it is busy making silk purses out of sows’ ears, the drug is actually taking payment for this trick directly from you.

Drink alcohol heavily and you might as well play rugby because the ugly stick is coming to give you a good whacking either way!

Alcohol’s effect on your skin is similar to its effect on the rest of your body: it steals the good hydration and leaves the bad (dryness, bloating and redness).

When you drink alcohol, it hinders the production of an anti-diuretic hormone. This causes your kidneys to work extra hard to remove excess water from your system, sending water to your bladder (and you to the restroom!) instead of your organs.

Don’t forget that your skin is the largest organ in the body, and drinking a lot of alcohol leaves it dehydrated.

How does alcohol affect your appearance?

When skin is dry, it is much more likely to wrinkle and make you look older than you are.

Alcohol also robs your body of Vitamin A, which is essential for cell renewal and turnover, so your skin could take on a dull grey appearance.

Staying hydrated will obviously have opposing effects: smoothing out wrinkles, leaving your skin looking bright, young and fresh.

Drinking water is the only way to combat the drying effects of alcohol, hydrating from within.

Being so depleted of vital nutrients, electrolytes, and fluids, your skin often shows signs of bloating and swelling.

When you’re lacking what you need, your body will store whatever it can get, wherever it can, and any water you take in will cause your tissues to swell.

Alcohol can also affect pre-existing conditions like gout and rosacea, causing them to worsen or flare up more often.

Alcohol increases your blood flow, often causing blood vessels in your face to dilate (sometimes permanently) and often burst, leaving behind broken capillaries and red spots that are difficult to get rid of.

When you drink alcohol, it’s broken down into acetate (basically vinegar), which the body will burn before any other calorie you’ve consumed or stored, including fat or even sugar.

So if you drink and consume more calories than you need, you’re more likely to store the fat from the Twinkie ™ you ate and the sugar from the Coke ™ you drank because your body is getting all its energy from the acetate in the beer you sucked down.

Further, studies show that alcohol temporarily inhibits “lipid oxidation” in other words, when alcohol is in your system, it’s harder for your body to burn fat that’s already there.

Your body has a set number of calories needed to maintain your weight.

This need is based on your height, weight, age, gender, and activity level.

When you consume more calories than your body needs, you will gain weight. Alcohol can lead to weight gain from the calories it provides and by causing you to eat more calories after consuming the alcohol.

It’s easy to forget that you can drink as many calories as you eat. In fact, some drinks can have as many calories as a meal!

Check out how many calories you can get from your favorite cocktail below. Remember to check the serving size and to add the calories from any juice or soda that is combined with the liquor:

The next time you reach for a cocktail before your meal consider if it’s worth the weight that you could be gaining from it.

Research has shown a 20% increase in calories consumed at a meal when alcohol was consumed before the meal.

There was a total caloric increase of 33% when the calories from the alcohol were added. Along with the increase in weight, you can have an increased risk to your health because of where you gain weight.

A study of over 3,000 people showed that consuming elevated amounts of alcohol is associated with abdominal obesity in men. So, the reverse must also be true: stop drinking lose weight, simple!

Many people joke about this being a “beer belly.”

Unfortunately, a “beer belly” puts you at an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, elevated blood lipids, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease.

The late-night munchies are often associated with a night of drinking. Have you ever realized that anytime you drink alcohol you are hungrier or you end up eating more than usual?

Studies have shown that in the short term, alcohol stimulates food intake and can also increase feelings of hunger.

I wish I could make one of your boot camps I don’t have the luxury of traveling to those locations however I watch you every single day on YouTube sometimes two and three times a day.! Your work is remarkable. Thank you for taking The situation so seriously to help others like myself to get off of this horrible toxic drug ! . It has destroyed my life in so many different ways I can’t even begin to explain. Hopefully , one day , I will be able to make it to one of your boot camps. Until then, I will continue to follow you on YouTube. I have learned so much from you… you wouldn’t believe it. Poison in a pretty bottle. I don’t think people really realize how dangerous alcohol really is and Because of you , you’ve changed my life! P.S. also , I think you’re the most adorable man I’ve ever seen in my life. God bless you for your good work. I hope one day I get to meet you! Kristen

  2. thx for these convincing pics and facts! tho’…calling out beautiful kathy bates as the “ugly woman” is harsh. possibly a mule to a race horse instead?!?!

  3. 7 days now without the poison!
    Feeling extremely motivated after reading your book twice. No need or craving for drinking this week. I can probably count my sober days on one hand for the last 25 years.
    Many thanks Craig!

  4. Hi Craig

    Thanks so much for all your help. I read alcohol lied to and it worked really well but then I decided I could just have a couple of drinks with friends and you know what's coming……
    Luckily you have alcohol lied to me again and it's helped me get free again. I listen on audio and bought all the supplements. I have been alcohol free for a week now and been back at the gym since they reopened on the 12th April. I feel great
    Unfortunately I can't afford the one to one programme but your book and you tube videos really are helping.
    I am sober

  5. I’ve been drinking for 10 years and am 6 days sober. How long before alcohol is completely out of my system? I’m so excited for this new change by the way. Thank you for your videos!

  6. Great job! I read the book and followed it to a T. Coming up on 21 days of sobriety after 20 years of near daily beer drinking. I feel so damn good! Almost every day I rejoice in the fact that I don’t have to lie or hide my drinking. Or arrange my schedule. I can’t wait to watch my basketball stomach slowly go away. I am 100% positive that I got this and I am so looking forward to an entirely new chapter in my life.

  7. Craig
    Thank you for all of your advice. I'm at day 7 of sobriety today which is the most sobriety after 3 decades of poisoning myself. I feel the fog lifting already. Thank you for all your wisdom and words of advice.

  8. Craig I am so very happy I came across your book! Instead of buying the usual wine last weekend I decided to stop drinking full stop. I consider myself lucky because I am not physically addicted. I have just used alcohol as a crutch . I don't want it in my life anymore and it's all down to the simple truths explained by you. Thank you so very much. carol.

  9. Thank you for putting my life back on track! I pretty much have your book on repeat at the moment and I’m five weeks in after my pivotal moment.
    The realisation has hit me that I went for the cheese and had been caught for well over a decade, but with your help I’m putting my life and my health back together. I too one day am hoping to make it to one of your boot camps.

    Cannot thank you enough.
