But you don't need to give it up entirely to lose weight, according to this video from Esquire.
Studies have shown that alcohol can slow the growth of fat cells, help your body burn calories and help regulate insulin levels.
If you're looking to lose weight, don't bother with the high calorie cocktails and Jägerbombs.
Instead stick to wine - particularly white wine - as well as spirits and light beer.
But all in moderation, of course.
