One question that comes up time and again in my clinic is: 'can I drink alcohol and still lose weight?' The answer is yes, you probably can, but unfortunately alcohol can slow down weight loss in a number of ways.
Last week we were told that there is 'no safe level of alcohol consumption' and that drinking any alcohol can increase the risk of cancer. Many of us enjoy alcohol and we're unlikely to completely give up drinking it in spite of this new information. So what can we do to make sure that our drinking does the least harm to our health possible?
It's such a cliché nutritionist thing, I know, but I do love a green juice. I found the inspiration for this green juice recipe at the Good Life Eatery recently and have successfully reproduced it at home.
