We’ve teamed up with Drinkaware, the UK’s leading alcohol education charity, to help Everyone Active participants learn more about the health effects of alcohol and get practical tips on how to cut back and feel better.
Drinkaware have a range of resources and tools, from a mobile app to track your drinking to a website packed with information and advice, to help you set goals and stay motivated to stick to them.
Cutting back could help you lose weight
Calories in alcoholic drinks can quickly stack up, making it difficult to shift those extra pounds. Did you know there are as many calories in two pints of beer as there are in a burger? Or that it could take around 20 minutes to run off the calories from a large glass of wine.
Take Drinkaware’s DrinkCompare Calculator to see how your drinking compares to the rest of the UK and discover how even small changes to the way you drink could have a positive effect on your health and wellbeing.
Need another reason to cut back?
As well as helping you lose weight, cutting down on alcohol can also improve your heart health, mental health and even your sex life. Watch the videos below to find out more.
