3. Choose Skinny Drinks Fewer than 200 Calories
This will require some research ahead of time. Generally, cocktails tend to be full of calories and sugar. When ordering cocktails, ask for half the amount of sugar/syrup or refrain from adding it all together and have a single shot instead.
But if that does not float your boat, ask for a cocktail with tonic water or diet coke or cranberry instead of regular juice and soda. For beers, choose light over dark beers since they are lower in calories and carbs. Champagnes and white wines are a wiser low-calorie choice among all alcoholic drinks.
4. Allow Yourself One to Two Drinks, Tops
Moderate drinking for women is by definition, having no more than one drink per day and for men no more than two drinks per day.
Cut Yourself Early
Cutting yourself off at one or two drinks can help you stave off calories and prevent you from sabotaging your diet.
Even if you do not drink moderately, but rather binge drink here and there at occasional events, it is still recommended to have at most one to two drinks per day to help keep your waistline in check. Keep in mind, drinking four drinks in one night each week can lead to an unhealthy ten pounds of weight gain in one year.
