043 – To booze or not to booze – How to navigate client dinners, socializing with friends and enjoying alcohol without royally screwing up your fat loss progress

You’re either on a fat loss plan or you’re socialising... NONSENSE! No one is asking you to become a nun, shack up in a convent and shun all social engagements in favour of a nice night in (with your cat) chowing down on some delicious boiled broccoli and dry chicken...all served out of Tupperware of course! Good god. How bleak. Nor, for that matter, is anyone in any way shape or form condoning the measuring of wine poured into your glass just so you can stay “on plan”. This is ridiculous behaviour, and quite frankly, utterly unnecessary! Join Rachel and David in this highly refreshing episode as they take you through how to realistically and coherently navigate a healthy social life (with wine) while on a fat loss plan...without seriously sabotaging your progress, leaving you resentful or worse, leaving you friendless in the process! David explains the importance of differentiating between drinking as a means of escapism versus socialising, how the latter moves you towards emotions and needs you want more of (acceptance, fun, love, connection), and how to fulfill these needs in other ways that aren’t just, you know, the gym, food and alcohol. They show us how to construct a lifestyle that is conducive to looking and feeling your best year round, without feeling like you are making monumental sacrifices, missing out on all the fun your friends are having or resorting to desperation diets on the back end of a holiday! The two delve into self worth and why it is a key driver of all our behaviours, how it determines whether we get dragged along by the crowd...or whether we stand up for ourselves and construct a life that is in line with our values instead. Practically speaking, Rachel answers the question of: “How much alcohol is appropriate for me to drink on my fat loss plan?”, the rationale behind her answer, and why, if the reaction is more along the lines of... “What?!!! That’s all?!!”... then we know we’ve got a problem on our hands. An entertaining and insightful listen from our experts on how to live life fully, effectively and from a place of massive growth without compromising who you are in the process. The closing quote is pure GOLD...But you'll have to listen in for that one!
