It’s no shocker that alcohol can be the downfall of even the most air tight diet. Beer is full of empty calories and carbs, and mixed drinks can have more sugar than they do alcohol. But when you’re four frozen margaritas deep, it’s easy to forget and order another round. It’s not like you’re handed a Cosmopolitan with a nutrition label on the side. How can you be sure of the calorie content of your drink?
We’re only human, and we ere and stumble all the time. Hitting the bar on Friday night and running up a tab is included in that category. You want to have a good time, and we’re in the same boat. That’s what the weekend is for! So we’ll let you in on a little secret: you can still get your drink on without watching your diet crash and burn. No, you don’t need to get your eyes checked, you read that right. There is a way to loosen up without the empty calorie bloating and next morning, “Why did I drink so many wine coolers?”.
That’s why we’re forever grateful for the people at Fitness Infographics and Get Drunk, Not Fat (boldly named) for creating this chart. Here, you can see the drinks that have the highest amount of calories per alcohol content, instead of calories per added fillers. They even toss out a little grade, raging from A+ to F-, so you know what’s an exceptionally good choice, or what you shouldn’t even consider. How could it get much easier?
Now you can see just how your spirit/beer/ mixed drink stacks up against the others (or maybe possibly be alarmed at how close Everclear is to pure ethanol). We’re tempted to print one out and pack it in our wallets. You never know when it could come in handy!
Is your go to drink a calorie catastrophe or a super spirit?
