Diet Friendly Alcohol

Thursday, 24 Feb 2011 02:56 PM

If you are on a diet or seriously considering dieting to achieve weight loss, then you are naturally worried about calories from alcohol. Although it is true that the calories in alcohol can seriously throw off your diet plan, a little thought and planning will ensure that you can still enjoy a glass or two while keeping the alcohol calories to a minimum.
The five best alcoholic drinks to consider while dieting are light beer, microbrews, diet or diluted wine, combos of alcohol with a diet drink, and combos of alcohol with sugar-free red bull.  
Lower your calories by combining alcoholic drinks with low-calorie mixers. The idea is to have alcoholic drinks that provide less than 100 calories each. So, restricting the number of drinks to a maximum of two will help you keep extra calories at bay.
