Let’s face it guys,
Most of us love drinking beer but very few of us know when to quit for the day and very few of us drink it in right amount. Most of us drink it to get wasted. Don’t we?
Excess of anything can turn out to be disastrous for your health, whether it is healthy nutrient protein or carbs or fat.
You may have heard that drinking moderate amount of beer is good for health. Yes it is true only if you drink it in moderate amount. After all it has alcohol, whose excess in you body will not do any good.
So, here’s the deal,
Below negative impacts can come into the picture if you consume beer in large quantities:
1. Beer Is High In Empty Calories:
Beer is high in calories but it has very few amounts of nutrients, this makes it bad for people who are trying to lose weight. Your liver converts alcohol present in the beer to acetate and body burns acetate to get energy instead of fat and excess amount of fat is stored in your body, mostly in your belly and hips. This is why we use the term “beer belly”.
2. Liver Damage:
Drinking excess amount of beer everyday will trigger inflammation in liver. Chronic drinkers have high risk of developing fatty liver disease (Steatosis), alcoholic hepatitis and this may lead to cirrhosis. And liver disease is not a joke.
3. Heavy Beer Drinking Can Effect The Brain:
Heavy alcohol consumption can trigger hormonal imbalance and may stop healthy development of organs. Over time heavy drinkers damage their short and long-term memory functions and they may be unable to recall their plans and intentions. And may face trouble focusing and learning. Heavy consumption may lead to insomnia and depression and risk of strokes may increase.
4. Low Blood Sugar:
Beer can interfere with sugar levels in your body and contribute to weight gain. Sugar is stored in your liver as glycogen, when blood sugar drops, liver converts glycogen to glucose and it gets released into the bloodstream. The impact of alcohol in this process is that when blood sugar drops, the liver does not convert glycogen into glucose, making you feel hungry and forces you to eat whatever and destroys your diet plan.
You should have moderate amount of beer after eating healthy food according to your diet plan.
5. Dehydration And Fatigue:
Beer contains alcohol, which is a strong dehydrating agent. Heavy alcohol consumption decelerates the functioning of your nervous system, which leads to tiredness.
6. Sleep Difficulties:
Heavy alcohol intake can lead to sleeping difficulties, which leads to poor quality of sleep. Without proper sleep, your body can not function properly.
Chronic alcohol drinkers have also reported an increase in disturbing dreams and nightmares.
Take care of yourselves.
