Call time on daily drinking
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.
