Over the last 25 years I have found that many of my clients tend to underestimate the amount of alcohol they drink. While they might claim to only have a few glasses of wine during the week and a little more on the weekends, the reality is often much different. In fact, many clients drink several glasses a day and a couple of bottles on the weekends. This regular drinking may seem normal to some, but it can have negative effects on physical and mental health over time. I used to believe that regular social drinking was fine as long as I maintained a healthy diet and exercise routine, but eventually realized that alcohol was negatively affecting my life.
To address this issue, I decided to stop drinking for a year and monitor the changes that occurred. While the initial period was challenging, I began to notice many positive effects, including improved sleep, higher energy levels, reduced bodyweight and a more positive outlook. After a year, I reintegrated alcohol into my life but made sure to consume it in a way that did not negatively affect my wellbeing.
This experience led me to develop a system to help others reset their alcohol intake. This system involves taking a break from alcohol, incorporating regular exercise, and receiving nutritional advice to maintain motivation and improve overall wellbeing. I have found that this approach has helped many clients reset their alcohol intake and experience the positive benefits of healthier lifestyle choices.
