‘Tis the season to be jolly, and with that will probably come partying and more partying but before you wreck your diet and break your healthy eating habits that you’ve been so dedicated to all year, consider what a nutritionist says is the healthiest alcohol available.
In an article on TheNewDaily.com.au, Dr Michael Livingston of the Centre for Alcohol Policy Research at La Trobe University says there’s no one particular alcohol to avoid but rather the volume of alcohol in your drink is what you need to consider.
In this regard reading the label is crucial as it will show alcohol strength and allow you to keep track of the number of standard drinks.
You also need to watch your sugar intake as the drinks lowest in sugar are best. Avoid cocktails and premixed drinks although these are usually the lowest in alcohol.
Experts suggest non-alcoholic beer or wine or low alcohol beer or wine.
Spritzers are also a good choice as they are basically wine with soda or mineral water.
