Ochsner LSU Health #AlcoholFreeFor40 Challenge Documents the Impact Alcohol has on Body, Mind and Spirit

by BIZ Magazine

The new year brings the best of healthy intentions, but COVID-19 has made wellness goals even more challenging this year. Ochsner Eat Fit invites you to reboot your resolutions with our sixth annual Alcohol Free for 40 Challenge.

The challenge, which begins on Ash Wednesday (February 17) and concludes on Easter Sunday (April 4), encourages participants to make it their own self-experiment by tracking pre- and post-challenge metrics, including labs that show inflammation and liver health, body composition to reflect body fat, muscle and hydration status, blood pressure, and a close-up photo to see face, skin and eyes.

The #AlcoholFreeFor40 Challenge gives us the opportunity to see and feel the benefits of going alcohol-free, both inside and out.

To make it easier than ever to track these metrics before and after the challenge, Ochsner Eat Fit is offering these metrics for just $25 (value of $400), in New Orleans, Covington, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Shreveport and Monroe.

Here’s what to expect:

  • Within Days: Improved energy, better quality of sleep, clearer eyes and improved appearance of under-eye circles
  • Within One Week: Reduced fluid retention, brighter skin, improved clarity and focus.
  • Within One Month: Positive changes to your weight and healthier hair, nails and digestion.

Those embarking on this wellness journey are encouraged to share their progress and connect with others via the #AlcoholFreeFor40 hashtag and its Facebook page. Click here to join the group today.
