Also spirits, that is, distillates, rose by 21.2% in the first week to reach 70% , the fourth. Wine, for its part, has gone from + 6% to + 62.6%.
And since alcohol does not go well alone, we have also stocked up on snacks and nuts, whose consumption has soared to + 78.2%.
All this, as is evident, is going to take its toll on our silhouette, because we are drinking and consuming without hardly moving.

On a very simple level, your weight depends on the number of calories you consume, how many of those calories you store, and how many you burn up. But each of these factors is influenced by a combination of genes and environment. Both can affect your physiology (such as how fast you burn calories) as well as your behavior (the types of foods you choose to eat, for instance). The interplay between all these factors begins at the moment of your conception and continues throughout your life.
