Alcohol, Abstinence & Alternatives

Another Carnival season is behind us, and for many, it’s a time for fasting
and abstinence. In 2016, registered dietitian Molly Kimball wrote an
article challenging New Orleanians to give up all alcohol from Ash
Wednesday until Easter as a way to reboot and learn how alcohol affects our
bodies. In the years since, the #AlcoholFreeFor40 Challenge has grown, with
Ochsner Eat Fit programs across the state hosting this community
initiative. Molly visits our studio to talk about how the challenge has
evolved and the impact it has had on the lives of some participants.
