Liquid calories

A huge health trap to watch out for during the

holiday season is alcohol consumption. Even if

you watch what you eat and sometimes even

skip meals as the year winds up to warp speed,

all the celebratory drinks will add up and

eventually take their toll on your weight and

your health. Alcohol is loaded with calories in

the form of carbohydrates. One 200ml glass of

white wine contains around 135 calories – that’s

the same calorie count as a bowl of Coco Pops.

Stick to one glass of your chosen tipple at

any party (aside from the few you’ve chosen as

your ‘blow-out’ events) and opt for low-calorie

drinks where possible. Choose a diet mixer

rather than the full sugar version and light

beer instead of full strength. Avoid drinking

sparkling wine on an empty stomach, as the

bubbles encourage the stomach to absorb the

alcohol more quickly.
