There is one important fact many do not know about alcohol: alcohol releases estrogen into the bloodstream. Not only does estrogen promote fat storage and inhibit muscle growth, but frequent estrogen spikes in the body have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer.
And last but not least, alcohol abolishes inhibitions, decreases will-power, stimulates appetite, and causes poor judgment.
So my question to you is...DO YOU HAVE THE DISCIPLINE TO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL FOR THE NEXT 30 DAYS? This is my challenge to you. I am not asking for you to stop drinking forever...but just for the next 30 days. Just think how much progress you would make just taking out your alcohol alone. Go For It! Don't Give In!
