When it comes to alcohol, the phrase “everything in moderation” most definitely applies and should be respected religiously, but some people manage to lose their way.
Too much alcohol can cause hypertension (high blood pressure), which increases the risk of a heart attack. It can make you gain unwanted and unhealthy weight because of the extra calories too. There’s roughly 200 calories in a pint of beer, and about 230 calories in 100 grams of vodka.
If you look at these before and after photos, you can witness how the body changes, depending on whether you’re a heavy drinker, or you’re sober. Some of the people are barely recognizable in comparison to their former selves and all of them were happy to share their success and progress, in hope of motivating others who have a drinking problem, to quit and live a much healthier and more organized life.
