Is drinking 12 units of alcohol in one night ONCE per week worse than drinking 12 units of alcohol over the ONE week? If so why as its the same amount

MUCH worse: drinking more than 4 drinks on one occasion (3 for women and men over 60) constitutes binge drinking, and is statistically associated with the development of alcohol abuse and all its problems. It is also FAR more damaging to various organs (brain, nervous system, liver, pancreas, stomach etc etc) than drinking 1-2 drinks per day.

Don't over-restrict calories, add exercise instead to stay healthy and energetic. ...Read more

(1) Best time(s) of the day to eat fruits? (2) Should they be consumed before/after/during meal? (3) What are the best fruits to eat and why?

Throughout the day: You can eat fruits as snacks several times during the day and even with meals too.

Often people consume fruits with high fiber content like apples or berries as snacks because the fiber is filling and they offer other great nutrients too. ...Read more

Drinking 8-10 cups of water per day is a norm for everyone or the dose should be adjusted individually? Should I even drink without being thirsty???

Misconception: It has value for anyone to consume fluids in amounts needed to assure proper hydration.However, the focus on water in this amount is not needed.
