Giving up alcohol works! I lost 3 lbs. last week by simply cutting out drinking during the week. I drink in moderation, only one drink a day usually. But doing just this small thing made a huge difference! Instead, I’m drinking tonic water with lime, just to make me feel like I’m drinking an “adult” beverage. Also, alcohol slows your metabolism, so that’s just further incentive to give it up. If you’re having trouble losing those last few lbs. try going alcohol free for awhile.
