Drink These Alcohols To LOSE Weight

This may all sound as if alcohol is ruining your chances of that beach body. But fear not — watching your weight doesn’t necessarily mean having to cut alcohol entirely out of your diet.

Rather than reaching for drinks high in sugar or calories, enjoy some of these 100-calorie options instead:

According to Eleesha Lockett MS, these are the best alcoholic drinks for weight loss

  1. Vodka
    Calories: 100 calories in 1.5 ounces of distilled 80-proof vodka

Alternative cocktail: Choose low-calories mixers such as club soda and avoid overly sugary juices.

2. Whiskey
Calories: 100 calories in 1.5 ounces of 86-proof whiskey

Alternative cocktail: Ditch the cola and take your whiskey on the rocks for a low-calorie alternative.

3. Gin
Calories: 115 calories in 1.5 ounces of 90-proof gin

Alternative cocktail: Aim for something simple, such as a martini — and don’t skip the olives, they contain beneficial antioxidants such as vitamin E.

4. Tequila
Calories: 100 calories in 1.5 ounces of tequila

Alternative cocktail: The best part about tequila is that the customary tequila “shot” is just salt, tequila, and lime.

5. Brandy
Calories: 100 calories in 1.5 ounces of brandy

Alternative cocktail: This drink is best served as an after-dinner digestif and a good brandy should be enjoyed slowly to savor the subtle fruity sweetness.

The bottom line
While cutting alcohol completely out of your diet isn’t necessarily the only way to lose weight, there are many improvements that can be made in your health journey by simply cutting back on the booze.

You can enjoy a healthier body, improved sleep, better digestion, and fewer of those excess “empty” calories.

And if you do plan to drink, enjoy a vodka or whiskey on the rocks — and skip the soda
