Post-Sevens febfast


Post-Sevens febfast


People who overdid it at the Wellington Sevens this weekend can give their poor livers a break for the rest of February by signing up to febfast.

“The Sevens caps off a busy summer celebration season and many people are looking to give their bodies a break,” febfast coordinator Jackson Wood said.

“febfast is the perfect opportunity to push pause on alcohol and reassess your relationship with booze.

Mr Wood said previous febfasters had reported feeling healthier, having more energy, losing weight, and saving money.

“Nearly two thirds of people who have taken the febfast challenge now have more alcohol-free days every week since completing febfast,” Mr Wood said.

“The benefits of taking a month off booze stay with people for the rest of the year and they feel better for it.”

Registrations are still open for any guilty Sevens fans at www.febfast.org.nz
