Avoid drinking alcohol
Alcohol is an energy dense food, which is quite poor in its nutrient content. That is why manufacturers label calories from alcohol as “empty calories”. Alcohol has twice as many calories as a gram of carbohydrate or protein. Alcohol gets to the liver and it metabolizes to energy.
