DR’S OR­DERS

You don’t have to ditch booze to drop ki­los. Choose your tip­ple wisely, and you can have your metaphor­i­cal cake and... er, drink it

VODKA AND SODA

A shot of vodka con­tains lit­tle more than 50kcal and soda wa­ter adds noth­ing. But on its own, this can be as bland as tap wa­ter – so add some lime for flavour and vi­ta­min C.

GIN AND DIET TONIC

With its fresh taste and just 97kcal, this is a tried-and-tested tonic for joint pain. Mean­while, the ju­niper berries in the gin con­tain flavonoids that may help to lower your risk of heart dis­ease.

WHISKY ON THE ROCKS

The lack of sug­ary mixer makes this an­other light op­tion: a gen­er­ous shot con­tains min­i­mal carbs and a rea­son­able 117kcal. Its el­lagic acid also helps to kill pre-cancer cells.
