How Alcohol Affects Weight Loss Efforts

When trying to lose weight, it can feel like you have to give up so much that you may find yourself asking, "Do I have to give up drinking alcohol, too?". Well, the short answer is no, you don't have to. But the long answer is that you'll be better off in your weight loss efforts if you cut out the empty calories of beer, wine, and hard liquor.

If you are taking supplements to aid in your weight loss, you have extra reason to think about avoiding alcohol. There are different considerations for different supplements, of course. Since garcinia cambogia has become a popular weight loss product lately, a lot of people wonder, "Can I drink alcohol while taking garcinia cambogia?".

The answer, as the information on site linked above indicates, is yes and no. You can probably drink a little bit here and there without it having a major impact on your weight loss. But you need to be careful not to drink at the same time that you take the garcinia cambogia itself as drinking can have a negative impact on its effectiveness and can result in some side effects like an upset stomach.
