A St. Patrick’s Day celebration does not have to derail your weight loss efforts. The same healthy choices you are making regarding the foods you eat and the activities you perform work for choosing your celebration beverages. Even though you will be enjoying an evening out, you do not have to sacrifice your progress toward the figure you desire.
Low-Calorie St. Patrick’s Day Drinks
Low-calorie drink choices help you keep your figure and do not interfere with your weight loss progress. A few beverages you can enjoy without worrying about too many calories include:
• Vodka Soda- 1.5 ounces of a vodka soda has 96 calories. The ice and soda water do not have any calories. You can also add a splash of cranberry juice for taste and color or include a lime wedge.
• Green Beer- a 12-ounce serving of beer contains approximately 120 calories. You can sip your beer or alternate it with a non-alcoholic beverage to keep your calories at a minimum.
• Bloody Mary- a 10-ounce bloody Mary contains approximately 125 calories. You also receive the additional benefit of the fiber in the vegetable juice and the celery might keep you feeling fuller so you will not drink as much.
• Wine- a 5-ounce glass of wine also has approximately 120 calories. You can also enjoy the anti-oxidant boost from the fruit.
Increase Your Step Count
If you do plan on enjoying a drink for Saint Patrick’s Day, prepare for your evening by getting in extra steps during the day. Also, go into your evening with a drink limit in mind so you do not go past your daily calorie allotment. Your hard work does not need to go to waste for one night, so choose wisely and keep your goals in mind.
