The Holidays are here! Along with great food and family, drinks are usually a common occurrence of our celebrations. Making the right drink choices is key when it comes to controlling your calorie intake. Obviously, a diet mixed drink is a better choice than some of the traditional holiday drinks (eggnog), BUT they still contain calories even though you are mixing it with a 0 calorie drink.
Alcohol is 7 calories per gram (about 100 calories per shot). Therefore, any alcohol is going to add to your daily calorie intake.
The key is to drink in MODERATION! Enjoy a few drinks, but enjoy them and their taste instead of drinking them mindlessly. Enjoy the fine wine, spirits, and family!
Happy holidays and stay safe!
