Many of those who love to drink struggle with letting their favorite drinks go while they shed holiday weight. The truth is, with a little management and education, you can still enjoy drinking while going hard on your diet. These are the drinks
1. Vodka Soda
The most obvious diet drink is, of course, vodka soda! With vodka being practically zer0-carb, you can expect results while still engaging in your favorite drink. Be sure to choose unflavored vodka, since the extra sugars and sweetners can be sneaky when it comes to damaging your diet. You can cut out over 100 calories with each glass by just keeping it simple.
2. Rum and Diet Coke
Choosing a diet soda can lessen the burden of the calories in hard liquor and mixing with rum is a delicious choice. There’s only 97 calories in a shot of rum!
3. Red Wine
Typically Americans consume 100 to 120 calories per glass of both red or white wine. While white wine may contain marginally less calories than red wine (white grapes have less carbohydrates), it also makes white wine a little lighter. The trouble is that it’s lightness makes it easy to drink and quicker to consume than red wine! Stick to the reds if you’re looking to slow down and enjoy your drink.
4. Light Beer
Light beers are a great option for those dieting and cutting back calories. Many light beers contain 90 to 100 calories per 12 ounces, while extra-light beers pack about 55 to 65. Stick with these brews instead of sugar-packed cocktails if you still want to keep seeing results on your diet!
