I am currently on my first serious cut however I am also a 20 year old with friends who love to go out once a week and for lack of a better word get smashed.
I have nailed my diet and training Ive been doing it 2 weeks and have never looked leaner in my life, however every week I find myself going out drinking, last week was bad I had 11 pints and threw up etc and couldn't function the next day. But then again apart from missing a cardio session I made progress.
This week I am cutting it down to just a bottle of merlot no carbs just 700 alcohol calories.
How much does alcohol slow down fat loss ? Is one bottle of red wine that bad for me once a week ?
My diet Is 100 carbs, 220 protein, 100 fat
I lift +30 min incline walking 2 days in a row, 1 day HIIT then repeat. And I throw in a rest day usually the day I plan on being hungover.
