Avoid Excessive Alcohol Consumption

Avoid excessive alcohol consumption

Avoid excessive alcohol consumption. Minimize beer intake. The case of alcohol might seem paradoxical. Here is how in small serving alcohol triggers a stress response that is actually beneficial. However in large amounts such as several shots of liquor or equivalent mixes of alcohol and sugar (or fruit juices), alcohol causes a mirade of adverse effects including over-glycemic response, insulin resistance, increased liver stress and increased estrogen (increased 16 hydroxy estrogen metabolites) levels. Also note that the seemingly loud behavior of the drunk is not a reflection of high testosterone. A dysfunctional liver due to alcohol or chemical toxicity is a major contributor to insulin resistance and impaired fat metabolism.
