Slim. Fit. Happy.

Did you know that one ounce of liquor has about 70-80 calories? And a lite beer has roughly 100. Consider these facts next time you belly up to the bar – you could be drinking way more calories than you realize.

Another calorie sneak is the mixers that usually come with that one ounce of liquor. Rum and Coke is a popular one, so factor in an extra 50-75 calories if you drink these. A cocktail like a margarita can have upwards of 500 or more calories!

Think of it this way, if you cut back one drink per day, you could potentially lose a pound per week just from the liquid calorie reduction.
