Get Drunk; Not Fat

Getting drunk while drinking alcoholic beverages happens to the best of us, but it’s important to be mindful of the calorie and carbohydrate content in the drinks you consume. Here are some tips to help you get drunk while staying mindful of your calorie intake.

The team over at Fitness Infographics put together a nice infographic showing just how many calories are in your favorite alcoholic beverages. They have researched dozens of adult beverages, compared them side-by-side and arranged them in order of their calorie to alcohol content ratio. The lower the cal:alc ratio, the better. The idea is simple – Get drunk; not fat.

Get Drunk, Not Fat

Here are some tips to help drink your favorite adult beverage while staying mindful of your calorie intake:

  1. Choose lower-calorie options: Light beers, clear spirits (such as vodka, gin, or rum), and wine are typically lower in calories compared to darker beers and mixed drinks.

  2. Avoid sugary mixers: Opt for club soda, tonic water, or sugar-free mixers instead of regular soda or fruit juices, which are high in sugar and calories.

  3. Drink plenty of water: Staying hydrated will help slow down your drinking pace and minimize the risk of getting a headache or feeling sick the next day.

  4. Eat before you drink: Having a meal before drinking can help slow down the rate at which alcohol is absorbed into your bloodstream.

  5. Avoid drinking on an empty stomach: Consuming alcohol without food can lead to faster and more intense intoxication, which can increase the risk of health problems and accidents.

  6. Limit your alcohol intake: Drinking in moderation is key to avoiding the negative effects of alcohol, such as weight gain, dehydration, and health problems.

  7. Track your alcohol intake: Keeping track of the number of drinks you consume can help you stay mindful of your alcohol intake and prevent overconsumption.

Remember, it’s important to drink responsibly and never drink and drive. If you’re concerned about the calorie content of your drinks or your alcohol intake, it’s best to speak with a doctor or a healthcare professional.

Getting drunk while drinking alcoholic beverages doesn’t have to mean gaining weight. By choosing lower-calorie options, avoiding sugary mixers, and staying mindful of your alcohol intake, you can enjoy your drinks while minimizing the impact on your health and waistline. So get drunk; not fat
