#1 – Sacrifice
Perhaps, this doesn’t sound good for the first tips. If you are having a party with friends for a week, you need to sacrifice the other days and only give two days for drinking, only for two days and it’s enough. Although alcoholic beverages are good to help you chill and take your time out from your busy work, everything great in life should be in moderate usage. Therefore, tell yourself to limit your drinking session in just two days during the week.

Here’s the catch, instead of drinking liquor which has higher alcohol content, choose some shots or combining your liquor with diet soda or limes. Below are choices that you can see the next time you are at a party and you can also research more about other drinks.

#3 – The Midnight Taboos
Late night drinking is a big no-no! It is normal to feel hungry after drinking alcohol, it is because alcohol increases the blood sugar, and the body will release a number of insulin to equalize the blood sugar this process encourages hunger. If you are a party animal and yet still concern about your weight, do not eat junk foods during midnight instead drink a glass of water to keep you hydrated and perhaps substitute your junk food cravings to other healthier options.
#4 – Healthy Diet
One of the reasons why some of my friends are still in shape after a night of partying hard is that they observe a healthy diet at home. A steady diet will compensate your weight loss goals. Some weight loss trainer doesn’t recommend alcohol in your diet, but if you insist on maintaining your partying-hard lifestyle, I would suggest you to maintain a healthy and steady diet every day.
#5 – Intense Workouts
A healthy diet is futile if it is not followed with great exercises routine. Working out regularly helps you bust out the kept-in calories inside your body. If you party hard, you should be working out harder in the gym or outside the gym. You can also hire a personal trainer and do workouts that are best for you. You might want to consider weight training and gradually increase the bar in order to burn more fats. Studies have shown that working out 3 times a week is sufficient to increase your metabolic rate.
Although some people are skeptical about this out-of-this-world lifestyle, now you have known that it is possible to party hard and lose weight at the same time. It only takes consistency and willingness to discipline yourself in order to achieve your goals. Never be lazy! If you have got time to party, you sure have time to exercise. Always set some time for workouts to reduce those consumed foods and alcohols that have made your belly flabby. Weight loss is knowing how to balance your lifestyle – drink and not gain weight. Scale yourself every day and see the results for yourself, do not forget to records your weights every day. This is one of the ways to keep you going and motivated.
