Let’s face it, no matter how hard you stick to eating cleanly and hours you spend in the gym, one night out on the town and you could be set back weeks of hard work. Luckily, here are some low calorie options that might just help you stay on track.
- Love Beer?
Beer is of the most social drinks and easily one of the most common party favorites. However, an average beer can range from a 145 calorie Budweiser to a 175 calorie Guiness Stout. We know you’re going to drink anyways, so if you’re looking to drink beer try one of these low calorie option.
2. Margaritas & Cocktails
Margaritas and cocktails, as delicious as they are, can be packed with artificial sweetners and carbohydrates. But living a low calorie/low carb lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the joys of alcohol.
“Celebrity and author Bethenny Frankel created her own brand of ready-to-serve cocktails, wines and flavored vodkas. She started off by creating the Skinnygirl Margarita as a lower-calorie option for ladies who wanted to enjoy a yummy margarita without all the extra calories found in most ready-to-serve margaritas.“
I know what you’re thinking, “But its Game of Thrones season, and I have to keep up with Cerci Lanister!” Well, whether you’re an advid wine drinking queen mother like Cerci Lanister or just hanging out at home relaxing, wine can be an excellent low calorie choice. An average glass (5 oz) of wine can be a great low calorie option at about 100 calories, but drinking drier white wine will shave another couple calories.
Feeling especially festive tonight? Then you are most likely going to be shooting some hard alcohol. If you find yourself staring at an empty shot glass in the near future, try shooting plain ol’ vodka. The sacrifice you make in the form of liquid fire down your esophagus will be worth the gym effort. An average shot of 80 proof vodka (1.5 oz) is only about 64 calories.
