    bad_wolf saidCan't recall the source but heard gin and tonic has close to nothing in calories, like celery, burn more energy by eating compared to what you're taking in.


    Tonic water is absolutely packed with Sugar, so don't .. just DONT unless you can get a Diet Tonic (yes they exist, and yes, the taste vile)

    Vodka and Sodawater is likely to be your best bet.

    ABSOLUT do a range of flavored vodkas that tast great with soda alone..

    Some of the ones I've tried at home (The spelling is what is on the bottle)

    Berri Acai - A refreshing subtle berry flavour.
    Wild Tea - Interesting taste - a little like galliano, but minus the sweetness
    Raspberri - Like cough mixture - I really don't like this one.
    Vanilia - A subtle vanilla taste - one of my faves.
    Citron - Lemon .. 'nuff said.
    Kurant - Again a little like cough mixture - not one I buy
    Mandrin - Mandarin - a mild, fruity taste (just like mandarin).
    Pears - Pear flavored - very good, crisp flavor
    Apeach - Peach flavored - not bad, hasn't really grown on me though

    I think Smirnoff still do a flavored range too - some of their flavors just tasted cheap previously so I stopped buying them

    If you can't stand vodka & bubbly lime water, you might consider a caesar. It'll have fewer sugar calories than a mix with orange juice or coke, although the salt is pretty high.

    Do your math. Add the calories from your alcoholic drinks to your daily meal plan, and adjust your food intake accordingly.

    Problem solved. icon_cool.gif

    ^ Paul has the right idea. I like a glass or two of wine a couple of times a week. Just eat a little less and pay a little more attention to macros on those days.

    I have switched from white to red wine and am hoping that helps with my HDL levels. That'll make it healthy drink, if it works. icon_wink.gif
