Many people have become accustomed to relax at the end of the day, using such low-alcohol beverages, such as wine or beer. However, this enthusiasm, as scientists have found, can have a very negative effect on the body and affect the figure. Research has shown that this method of relieving stress and for women and men increases the risk of obesity.
The specialists of the National Institute on Alcoholism found that even if a person drinks a small amount of alcohol after work, buying groceries for dinner, it will choose high-calorie foods, and during the supper he will eat much more food than usual.
Scientists have determined that in the days when men do not work after drinking alcohol, they consumed 2,400 calories, and women not to drink alcohol at the end of the day - 1700 calories. However, once they only drink alcohol after work, they began to use a 9 percent more fatty foods and calorie intake increased by 400 and 300, respectively.
Scientists believe that alcohol intoxication increases the amount of food consumed. In addition, a person, being in this state, opted for harmful and high-calorie foods. In the study, as the experts, brought together 1,800 people, most of whom have used 2-3 doses of wine or a beer after work.
