Now those who like their alcohol will probably not like me for this piece of advice. But it is what it is. And the truth is that more than 2 measures of alcohol for men and more than 1 measure of alcohol for women are defined as “too much”. And having too much alcohol can lead to high B.P., weight gain and increase your risk of heart disease. With different cultures around the world, the food habits differ. And some food types also increase the pressure on the heart. So you need to define how much is too much for you based on not only your food consumption but also your age, your current level of fitness, your weight and other lifestyle elements. So enjoy your booze but keep it in check so that you don’t stress out your heart.
