  • Picture this - Friday night, you just finished dinner, capping out your calories and fitting

  • all your macros in for the day.

  • Satisfied with the immense willpower you showed throughout the week in maintaining your diet,

  • you sit on the couch and prepare to go on a TV marathon binge, but before you can get

  • comfortable, you get a text from your best friend asking to come out to a bar tonight

  • and have some fun.

  • Your first reaction was "heck yea!"

  • With the diet you've been trying to stick to, you haven't been able to spend time to

  • hang out, have some fun, and go out there looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right, or Right for

  • the Night, whatever your preference is.

  • Does this picture sound familiar?

  • You've probably put aside a lot of fun nights and outings in order to keep up with your

  • diet, but sometimes you just have to get out there and enjoy yourself.

  • Well, the next best thing you can do is be mindful of your drink choices.

  • Without going into too much of the science behind alcohol metabolism, the most important

  • takeaway is that alcohol does indeed add calories and also affect the metabolic pathway, which

  • adds to your waistline, so making wise decisions can help you enjoy your night and also do

  • as little damage to your diet as possible.

  • Now, did you know that beer is the third most popular drink in the world, after water and

  • tea?

  • As popular as it may be, it's not exactly calorie-friendly.

  • Some of the heaviest beers you can get at a bar are the darker varieties such as stouts,

  • porters, and pale ales, netting on average 225 calories per glass.

  • Your best bet for diet-friendly beers are the lighter variety of lagers.

  • But with lowered calories comes lowered alcohol content as well.

  • That same light lager, where at 100 calories, only has roughly 4% alcohol by volume.

  • A 225 calorie pale ale on the other hand, can be as high as 8%.

  • Now, when you do the math, the lighter beer will still win out on an alcohol per calorie

  • basis, granted if you're willing to down more glasses.

  • If you're the type to just sip mostly on one glass throughout your night, you might be

  • better off getting just one of the lighter type of pale ales.

  • Things you definitely want to avoid are the extremely light beers that runs around 60

  • calories per bottle since you're basically drinking dirty water with very little alcohol

  • and also avoid high-calorie ciders.

  • Not a beer fan?

  • How about cocktails?

  • Well, cocktails are a bit tricky but the general rule of thumb for cocktails is the less sugar

  • added, the better.

  • Things like the heavy cream in a white Russian, sugary syrup in a whiskey sour and the tonic

  • in a gin and tonic, are the biggest players in bumping up calories and bumping up your

  • belly.

  • Usually the best diet-conscious choices are the ones with the least ingredients added.

  • An old fashioned, which only has a single sugar cube and some bitters added, will get

  • the vast majority of its calories from the whiskey itself.

  • A red bull and vodka, on the other hand, gets most of its calories from the added energy

  • drink which pushes its calorie total quite high.

  • Other solid tips are to go for drinks with more lime ingredients such as a mojito or

  • a marguerita since lime adds very little in calories, and choose to swap out soda ingredients

  • for its sugar free alternative if your bar allows it.

  • Oh, and for you AMF lovers, you might want to tone down your party mode just a little

  • bit...

  • If you're just looking for getting that buzz as quick as you can, by far the biggest alcohol

  • bang for your calorie buck is straight hard liquor.

  • And the positive note is that all hard liquors, be it vodka, rum, whiskey, gin, or tequila,

  • they all have pretty much the same amount of calories.

  • The only factor is the proof, or alcohol content divided in half, in the hard liquor.

  • The most typical hard liquor is 80 proof, or 40% alcohol by volume, and contains 96

  • calories per shot or jigger.

  • A 100 proof, 50% alcohol by volume, increases the calorie total to 123.

  • Although you're getting more calories in higher proof liquor, the relatively small increase

  • in calories might be worth the trade-off, that's if you're willing to take the shot

  • in the first place.

  • Whatever your drinking choice might be, please be sure to diet and drink responsibly and

  • always have a designated sober driver for your group.

  • And if you're really trying to stick to that diet, maybe your best option is to be that

  • DD yourself!
