You may be celebrating, but that doesn’t mean that that you
should send your judgment on holiday. Alcohol can interfere
with your blood sugar by slowing the release of glucose into the
bloodstream; it also contain a lot of calories – 89 calories per glass
of white wine or champagne, 55 calories in a shot of vodka, and
170 calories in a pint of stout beer. What’s more, alcohol breaks
down your inhibitions and judgment, which makes you that much
less likely to resist the junk foods that you would otherwise be
able to pass up.
