When you try to cut back, you often avoid things that you previously enjoyed such as fatty and high-calorie foods and alcoholic beverages. Hence, at the end of the day you may find yourself feeling somewhat deprived or bored with your weight-loss program. But should you really restrict yourself completely from having any alcohol?
