5 Healthy Alcoholic Drinks Options.
Updated: Sep 7
Enjoying a few drinks on a night out can be quite difficult for those counting the calories. Here are 5 low-calorie options you can consider without damaging your gains!
Red wine has a lot of health benefits due to the antioxidants but this tends to make reds more calorific. If you're counting the calories, white wine tends to have fewer calories then red wine.
Drinking Guinness may feel like eating a full on meal, but a pint of Guinness actually has fewer calories than a Budweiser. If we look at the numbers, Guinness has 126 calories, which is 19 calories less than a Bud. Plus Guinness contains under 10 carbs due to its low alcohol content.
With a 114 ml glass (4 ounces) containing around 85 calories, it's a great alternative from beer and wine.
Drink Light Beer
If you're a beer lover, start drinking the light stuff like Bud Light and Coors Light. These beers on average contain around 100 calories and with regular beer containing 250 calories, its a no-brainier.
Gin and S
G&S does not roll off the tongue like G&T, but here's why you should start adding soda to your gin. Tonic water is made with high fructose corn syrup and contains over 125 calories per can. Instead, use an alternative such as club soda.
