7. Cut the booze
Yeah, yeah, we know: Over your dead body. But listen up, man: If you really want to get past that plateau and see progress where there was none before, then it’s time to re-examine your priorities when it comes to alcohol, because cutting it completely will give you a huge boost toward your goal.
Here’s why: “Alcohol provides nearly the same amount of calories as fat and almost twice the calories of protein and carbohydrates,” Guy says, “but absolutely ZERO nutritional value.”
Worse yet, Guy says, the occasional bender also tends to stimulate our appetite while our inhibitions are lower. “How many of us have ended up at that late-night burrito place after a night of binge drinking, only to regret our decisions the next morning? Instead of reaching for the alcohol at social events grab a soda water with a twist of lime. No one will know the difference and you’ll save your calories for the ones that benefit your body.”
