Alcohol, drinks to avoid

 
Alcohol, drinks to avoid

- Fortified wine
Port, Madeira wine and other fortified wines are much higher in calories than ordinary vino because they're much more alcoholic and contain much more sugar. 

- Spirits
1 gram of alchol contains 7 Kcal, compared to 9Kcal for 1 gram of fat and 4 Kcal for one gram of sugar. The more alcohol a drink contains, the more calories! So stay away from rum, whiskey, tequila, gin, vodka and the rest. The drink alone contains 100 Kcal, and that's without a mixer!

- Spirits with mixers and cocktails
Spirits + mixers + fruit juice + sugar = calorie overload! So no whiskey and cokes, G&Ts or Tequila Sunrises if you don't want to pile on the pounds. 

- Fizzy drinks
They're high in calories (150 per can) and full of simple sugars that get absorbed straight into your bloodstream and end up stored as fat on your hips!

- Fruit juice
Beware the fruit juice ruse: it's not all healthy. Many fruit juices have lots of added sugar and are pretty calorific (70-100 Kcal per 100ml), so scrutinize the label and always get 100% pure juice.
