The 30-day energy-boosting meal plan
IF TOO MANY HOLIDAY SEASON INDULGENCES HAVE LEFT YOU FEELING SLUGGISH, TRY THESE LIGHT AND EASY MEAL IDEAS TO HELP PUT A SPRING BACK IN YOUR STEP
And as for the big A…
It would be mean to forbid alcohol for 30 days but you need to go easy if you want to reap the most benefits. Avoiding too many drinks in one go is key to staying on track here. Overdoing it will not only make you sleepy, it’ll also leave you feeling washed out the following day. A recent study from the journal Alcoholism revealed alcohol decreases the amount of time you’re likely to spend in both REM and deep sleep. Your allocation for this plan is six drinks a week, with no more than two drinks at a time.
Your six drinks may include: ½ pint of beer or cider; 125ml glass of wine, prosecco or champagne; one spirit (max 50ml) and mixer (200ml) – gin and tonic, vodka and lemonade, or Bacardi and Coke.
