Stopping this one thing will drastically help your weight loss
Is this stopping your weight loss?
“Just one can’t really hurt too much, can it?”
In his book Eat More Weigh Less, Dr Dean Ornish cites a study that found drinking three ounces of alcohol reduced the body’s ability to burn fat by one third. (Other studies have shown that alcohol can hinder fat burning up to 73%.)
So if you’re looking to get rid of that beer belly or unwanted fat around your midriff, you’ll have the best results if you totally eliminate alcohol from your diet.
If that’s not incentive enough, here’s something else…
A recent study found that men consume an additional 433 calories on the days they drink a moderate amount of alcohol (61% of that comes from the alcohol itself.)
The study also showed that on the days when alcohol was consumed, more meat and other foods containing high levels of saturated fat were also eaten (and less fruit and milk were consumed.)

It seems pretty clear that if you have a weight loss goals the first this you must stop/severely moderate is your alcohol consumption.
