The best and worst alcoholic beverages for your waistline

We find ourselves in challenging times, and it seems that many people are turning to beers, wine, and spirits for comfort. And nobody would blame them. However, if you're concerned about calories, you can make smarter choices whilst still enjoying a few cheeky drinks.
Here is our guide to how many calories are in your favourite alcoholic drinks.
.
.
White wine: 121 calories per glass... not too bad for a treat... but unfortunately that equates to 605 calories per bottle, so don't get too carried away!
.
Red wine: 125 calories per glass. Slightly more than the white, however keep in mind that red wine is full of antioxidants and a small amount (1 glass per day) may actually help to fight weight gain, as well as having many other health benefits. 
.
Champagne: 96 calories per glass - the winner of the wines!

Beer: 208 calories per pint - alongside a high carb content, beer is not your beach bodies friend. 
.
Cider: 210 calories per pint - unfortunately cider may also have to be reduced to an occasional treat.

.
Tequila: Those shots that seem like such a good idea at 1am are coming in at 104 calories - maybe we won't be so ready to agree next time. 
.
Vodka and Gin: Vodka and gin are some of your best options, coming in at 55 calories each for a shot. However, add a sugary mixer and you'll only be adding more calories - a gin and tonic comes in at 120 calories. Mix with soda for no extra cals.

Alcohol doesn't have to be completely cut out to achieve your body goals, just be smart about what you sip!
