During the festive season we all enjoy a drink or two, I know I do! But I've always been aware of the effects it can have on my body.
For the past three years the British Liver Trust have been putting forward their Love Your Liver campaign, setting up pop up liver heath clinics nationwide. Offering free health advice, the chance to undergo a non invasive fibroscan liver test and to sample some Eisberg alcohol-free mulled wine.
They are also encouraging people to take part in the three step challenge:
-Take two or three days off alcohol per week
-Get regular exercise
-Reduce the intake of sugary and fatty foods
I thought I would give it a go as part of my fitness journey, I was also kindly sent a bottle of Eisberg alcohol-free rosé wine to try whilst taking on the challenge.
The first step wasn't hard for me as we don't tend to drink in the house, however on nights where I feel that a really need a drink I think the Eisberg alcohol-free wine would be a great substitute for a regular bottle of rosé. I was slightly dubious at first I must admit but after trying it I'm a convert. It smells like wine and tastes like wine but without the acrid after taste that you often get. Definitely a winner in my book.
I've also started to go to the gym a lot more often this week and have been three times since Sunday. I'm strangely enjoying it and have been trying new exercises.
I'm also working on the third step, when checking my results from the online liver checker it did say that I should reduce my intake of sugary treats as I do tend to sneak the odd biscuit in during the evening but we're quite well behaved in our house and it's rare that we have a takeaway or processed foods. I tend to make everything from scratch.
