Which alcoholic drinks are the lowest in calories?! Advices


The weekend is almost here and alcohol should be consumed wisely to ensure that no excess "empty calories" are consumed. Remember that alcohol is relatively high in calories with 7 calories per gram and when you increase your alcohol intake, you consumer more calories! I am not saying not to drink because you are watching your diet but you can always choose the lighter alternatives.

Tips when you drinking:

  1. Be careful of what you mix your drink with. Remember that mixing your drink with some soft drink or juice can add another 100 calories and sugar to your drink. Drink clean drinks or mix them with drinks such as soda, tonic water or light refreshments.

  2. Drink a glass of water with ice in between drinks to keep you hydrated

  3. Add extra ice to your drink, making it last longer, keeps it cold and dilutes it to spread out the calories.

Always remember to drink responsibly!
