Nutrition – What are you drinking?
It’s easy to get carried away at this time of year, so it’s worth knowing just how many calories are crammed into your glass…
Don’t let the hidden calories in festive tipples spoil your waistline.
Clearly, watching the amount you put away over Chrimbo is worth keeping a (blurry) eye on, but there are other things you can do, too. Switching to slimline tonic waters and diet mixers are going to save you a lot of calories – up to nearly 100 calories if you opt for Diet Coke rather than the full-fat version and even more if you ditch fruit juices in favour of low-cal tonics. Also, looking at this table, it’s clear that you’re best off swerving the seasonal mulled wine altogether. Yeah, we know it’s Santa’s favourite tipple, but that’s probably why he’s such a big unit! Swap it out for a glass of bubbly instead, yeah? Cheers!
