Determine your drink count before starting. This makes it easy to stop and recognize your limit when drinks are ordered and passed around. Limit alcohol to one to two drinks per night.
Let us explain the "ever other" rule. Sip a low-calorie drink after each alcoholic drink. This way, you'll drink less alcohol at night and enjoy a delightful, low-calorie drink!
Another pro tip? Start a night of drinking with veggies and protein. Fiber and protein stabilize blood sugar and keep you full, counteracting alcohol's sedative effects.
Light beer has 64 to 198 calories per 12 ounces, so choosing light alternatives saves one-third to half the calories over time.
Starting the evening with booze without eating will make you feel it sooner. This can worsen hunger urges and make you less interested in your meals and drinks.
When you want wine, try prosecco! "Prosecco has fewer calories (90 in a five-ounce wine glass) than other wines (125). Most mixed cocktails include 300-600 calories."
A regular wine serving is five ounces. A larger glass makes it simple to drink two servings of wine when you think it's one. Two large glasses of wine equals four servings of calories and alcohol, which is bad for your waistline.
