Alcohol is a very high-calorie product and all its calories immediately go into processing, at the same time slowing the absorption of important minerals and microelements. Alcohol can considerably stimulate appetite. After a drink or two, you will be uncontrollably drawn to something fatty and salty to give yourself a treat, so that you can easily forget the sense of proportion.
Alcohol has no nutrients that are important for healthy metabolism. Any alcohol is poison for a human body. While your body is excreting the poison, it is also slowing down all metabolic and reduction processes. Two drinks can slow down your metabolism for a period of at least 3 days.
If you think that cigarettes can help you fight some excessive kilos, you are definitely wrong.

It is an intrauterine hormonal system, which puts hormones intrauterinally. Thus, the dose of hormones is 7.5 times less than in other methods of contraception.
Lack of sleep
Lack of sleep sufficiently violate metabolism and body's ability to break down carbohydrates. When you rest at night, the most important processes of turning food into energy take their place in your body.
