Do you exercise more when you know you had a few too many drinks the day before? A recent government health survey shows that people who drink more often, tend to also exercise more often when compared to those who drink less or don’t drink at all.
The study, which was published in the American Journal of Health Promotion, shows that heavy drinkers (women who have at least 46 drinks a month; one to two drinks a day) exercise about 20 minutes more per week. Moderate drinkers (women who have between 15 and 45 drinks a month) only exercise 10 minutes more per week.
While moderate drinking has often been linked to potential decrease in heart disease, researchers have found one possible reason for this uptake in weekly exercise – to compensate for the extra calories consumed with alcohol. Drinkers may feel guilty about the number of calories they pour into their bodies and in an attempt to work off these excesses they hit their workouts harder and longer. Make sense doesn’t it…
