Drinking too much can affect you in so many different ways. It’s easy to get carried away with your alcohol intake and the number of units you are consuming within a week.
At the healthtrainer service we will work to help support you into looking at ways to reduce your weekly intake and support you in receiving any further help if necessary.
If you feel you are drinking too much and would like some additional 1-1 support, contact us today.

Did you know it takes 13 hours for a bottle of wine (15%) to leave your system and 10 hours for four cans of lager?
B4U Drink is our new campaign to promote reduced drinking and to encourage everyone to think about how much they are drinking and the effects afterwards. So think about what you are doing the day after a night out?

Alcohol and Calories
Did you know that a glass of wine has the same calorie content as a slice of cake and that a pint of lager is the calorific equivalent of a burger? Alcoholic drinks are made by fermenting natural starch and sugars – this includes drinks such as wine, beer, cider and spirits. High sugar content in your drink equates to high calorie content. Calories in alcohol are ’empty’ calories as they have no nutritional content what so ever.
For further advice and guidance on Alcohol and Calories please follow this link: http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/alcohol/Pages/calories-in-alcohol.aspx
Mocktails are mock cocktails, or those that do not contain any alcohol. Any drink recipe can be modified by simply leaving the alcohol out, however, these recipes are some of the more common mocktails. These non alcoholic drinks are great for serving the entire family and a nice alternative for party guests who prefer not to drink alcohol.
