Marathon season reminds us it’s time to get serious about our fitness and whether you’re in training or inspired to get trim for the summer holidays ahead, Drinkaware want to help.
Professor Paul Wallace chief medical advisor at Drinkaware, says: “Drinking alcohol alongside training can have a major effect on your body, and ultimately impact your overall performance. Because alcohol is a diuretic, which means it makes your kidney produce more urine, drinking too much of it can lead to dehydration. Alcohol also interferes with the way the liver releases glucose into the circulation from the body's stores, which means you have low levels of blood sugar. In order to perform at your best, try to lower your overall alcohol intake. Use Drinkaware’s free mobile app, to track the alcohol you’re drinking.”
