In the pur­suit of get­ting lean you prob­a­bly al­ready know you should steer clear of al­co­hol - it’s called a beer belly for good rea­son, af­ter all. But if you don’t want to give up the grog then you should aim for at least one night of ab­stain­ing a week to help pre­vent the on­set of cir­rho­sis, which is a build-up of fatty tis­sue in your liver that can be deadly. As your main detox­i­fi­ca­tion or­gan your liver fil­ters out dam­ag­ing tox­ins, and go­ing to bed sober gives it time to re­pair, ac­cord­ing to the Jour­nal Of Hepa­tol­ogy. Re­search found that peo­ple who drank six nights a week had a sig­nif­i­cantly lower chance of de­vel­op­ing cir­rho­sis than those who drank ev­ery day.
