It might hurt to hear, but to lose weight, you may have to revamp your drinking habits. Besides the empty calories found in alcohol, many cocktails are filled with sugar, which hinders the ability to lose weight — even if you're closely watching the other things you're eating.
Better Choice: You don't have to say goodbye to alcohol forever — just make smarter choices and choose the healthiest cocktail options when out! For example, instead of a blended daiquiri, go for the fresher flavors of a low-cal mojito. And lucky for us, Bloody Marys and mimosas are some of the most guilt-free options out there. Also, cutting back on the number of drinks you have can do wonders.
