Watching the calories is tough but most things we consume these days come with listed calorie, fat and carbohydrate content so that we are informed and can make the right choices about what we eat. It’s much harder to calorie count or monitor intake when we don’t know what we’re consuming. Alcohol is a very good example of where we can consume calories without realising its effect and throw all our good work out of the window. Moreover, alcohol calories are empty calories and they don’t offer any nutritional value.
So what to drink when you’re out having a good time without doing too much damage (that’s calorie related damage… we take no responsibility for general drunken related carnage!)?
Here’s some ace tipple tips!
Some other tips include not drinking on an empty stomach, having a full glass of water in between every drink and stay away from mindless munching when there are nibbles around.
The best advice we can offer is to check the calorie count of your drink of choice before you indulge so that you know what you are consuming. On the odd occasion when you replace proper food calories with empty alcohol calories, waistlines shouldn’t be too compromised. But regular excess drinking is as bad as a cheeky daily chocolate bar. So arm yourself with knowledge and make smart drinking decision.
