Lose the booze, lose the weight

Posted: Updated:

Want to save a good chunk of money and lose weight at the same time?

Cut back on the booze! I'm not telling you to never drink again, but just give up alcohol for a full month. Doing this can:

  • Lower your cholesterol
  • Help you drop some pounds
  • Improve your sleep pattern
  • And detoxify your liver

Those who take the dry month route lose an average of almost three and a half pounds and cut cholesterol levels by five percent.

You'll have a healthier body...and up to a couple hundred bucks back in your wallet for every month you do this. Cheers to that!
