Alcohol causes cancer. Plus it has a TON of calories. You have to walk 30 minutes to burn the calories in ONE can of regular beer. And really it has no health benefits. Red wine may help but the impact on your cancer risk almost cancels it out.
So what to do instead? Make a special drink to replace it. I chose kombucha. It is basically a fermented carbonated sweet tea. Sound gross? The end product really just takes like a La Croix. I used this startup kit and it worked really well for me.
