I can follow the Whisperer Plan for 12 weeks, but I cannot completely avoid drinking beer or wine. I can certainly try and cut down but don't have the will power to completely give up. Are there any tips to manage or avoid alcohol?
Drinking alcohol is going to make your Whisperer journey more difficult, because in the presence of alcohol, the liver detoxifies the alcohol and fat burning is prevented. Most alcohols bring a significant amount of carbs, and this will also prevent fat burning and fat adaptation.
Do everything in your power to avoid alcohol for at least the first six weeks and look forward to a drink when you have a treat meal.
We discuss this in our book ‘TheDiet Whisperer:12-Week Reset Plan’ on page 27, 152 and 190. Please take special note of the advice on page 190.
