Alcohol & Your Body…
Alcohol can be a very big impact source of calories and carbohydrates to your body. Some may have very little sugar. Even the most savvy consumer may find it difficult to find the sugar content of an alcoholic beverages. because nutrition labeling done by alcohol manufacturers is voluntary. Requirements for the nutrition label content include carbohydrate content, but not sugars, per the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.
We all need an adult beverage every now and again. I don’t want to shun off the intake of alcohol, but if you are making a lifestyle change do research, drink less often and watch the “juices” you mix and the alcohol you buy.
Some suggestions I’d make would be red wine but watch the sweetness, champagne, mojitio rum and mint leaves, gin and tonic, martini straight, vodka and lime, soco and diet lemonade or splash of lemon and bloody mary, Just remember stay away from the added sugars, juices and try tonic, soda, real fruits, limes and lemons instead. Good luck and happy drinking responsibly as always.
