A calorie deficit

I told my doctor for years ‘idk why I’m gaining weight, I dont eat THAT much’ until one day I tracked my dinner at Cracker Barrel and went, yep. I am wrong. 😂

A standard shot of Whiskey with club soda ~ 70-80 calories which in the grand scheme of things isn’t that much and better from a calorie perspective than a heavy beer or cocktail .What you have to look out for us the drunchies and making sure your aware of how much your drinking bc that shot can turn into 3,4,5 fast and therefor ~300 calls. Additionally monitor/ or have a better idea of what your eating and how much alcohol has an effect on your diet/fitness.

Make sure you have that drink before dinner, alcohol can slow the digestive process throwing your sleep off which does a number of things to the body
