The answer is YES…but there’s a catch.
Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to cut out ALL alcohol consumption, while working to loose weight. But you do need to drink in moderation and make smarter beverage choices. Here's how:
Gin, vodka, whiskey, and other spirits have zero carbs. By adding soft drinks, like fruit juices or other sweet additives, you are turning your low-carb drink into a high-carb one. Instead, stick to soda or water and lime.
Yes, you can enjoy your beer without overloading your calorie intake. Light beers pack fewer calories and carbs than brewery's regular brand.
Did you know that one Pina Colada contains 90g of sugar which is equivalent of 6 shortbread biscuits? Staying away from the cocktail section is the best way to avoid unnecessary carb intake and keep your weight loss on track.
And finally, don't forget that indulging yourself with your favourite cocktail every now and again isn’t the end of the world. If you plan your consumption and practice moderation you can still enjoy your drinks without negatively affecting your weight loss goals.
