When it comes to summer and social settings it's easy to make one drink become two or three or...you get the point, it's a slippery slope. The more you tend to drink, the more your inhibitions go and the easier it is to not watch your nutrition.
Now, I am all for a few drinks to enjoy yourself, this goes back to that everything in moderation and those encouraged splurges! Just remember not every drink is created equal! Let's take a look at a few favorites to get an idea of just how much of our diet we may be drinking...
These are based on standard serving sizes in a restaurant:
Bottle of beer-150 cals
Rum and Coke-182 cals
Vodka and club soda-80cals
So if you are to imbibe in a libation, be safe and enjoy yourself, just make sure to be the savvy fit female/male I know you are and don't overdo it! Enjoy the nice weather!
