Best Alcoholic Beverage to drink for Fat Loss in New Orleans

Are you going out with your friends in New Orleans and hitting the bars? With a little planning and foresight you can somewhat avoid this diet disaster, and below i have listed some low calorie alcoholic drinks you should look at.

However, Alcoholic Drinks seem to be always overlooked as a culprit of weight gain…especially when you go out and consume them back to back.

Some Alcoholic Drinks contain just as many unhealthy calories as a McDonalds Hamburger… can you image what eating 4-6 of those in a couple hours will do to encourage some weight gain?

Ok Now onto the list…

Let’s Look at Beer First

The Worst Low Calories Beers.

- Anchor Porter, 209 calories per 12 oz serving

- McEwans Scottish Ale, 295 calories per 12 oz serving

The Best Low Calories Beers

-Pabst Extra Light Low Alcohol, 67 calories per 12 oz serving

-Molson Light, 82 calories per 12 oz serving

-Anheuser Busch Natural Light, 95 calories per 12 oz serving

Now onto the Wine..

The Worst..

-Ruby Port, A staggering 185 calories per 4 oz glass

-Port, 170 calories per 4 oz glass

-Ginger wine, 190 calories per 4 oz glass

-Martini Rosso, 192 calories per 4 oz glass

The Best….

- White Zinfindel, 80 calories per 4 oz glass

-Chardonnays, 90 calories per 4 oz glass

-Dry Red wine, 83 calories per 4 oz glass

-Dry white wine, 77 calories per 4 oz glass

-Champagne, 96 calories per 4 oz glass

As you can see..Wine can be just as bad if making the wrong choices..

Now, let look at the Liquor.

Liquor can be a little tricky because it usually involves making a cocktail which can REALLY pile on the calories…so it’s kind of difficult to get exact number’s but!

The Worst..

-Long Island Ice Tea, packs 780 in calories per drink!

The Best..

-Blody Mary or a Manhattan, usually reach the mid 100’s calories per drink

-The Mojito and Mowscow Mule are anothe 2 that are on the Lower calories spectrum.

In closing If you are planing on drinking on the weekends you better plan ahead because as you can see drinking a couple innocent Long island Ice teas or other Alcholic beverages sure can pack on some extra calories that will put your Fat loss to a halt in New Orleans.

I would recommend that ANYONE that is trying to lose weight anywhere from 8-20+ pounds of wieght should NOTĀ  be consumingĀ  alcohol because It taxes your system and it fights the progress you may be making in any exercise program or Boot Camp in New Orleans.

Let me know what you think, I love to hear your comments

P.S. I recently had one client in My New Orleans Boot Camp who decided to quit drinking for 20 days and dropped a extra 25 pounds on top of the previous 18 pounds from doing the boot camp the month before…She is a VIP boot camper now where she saves 33% off the price of boot camp a month!

She’s on the path to unstoppable Fat Loss…Click here to Get on the VIP New Orleans Boot Camp program!

I knew it already, but after reading your blog it’s been reinforced…alcoholic beverages are exactly what is stopping me from losing my flab. I need to slow down on the adult beverages! :D Thanks, Jonas.

Hi Sarah, I suggest..start off by halving the amount you drink, once you have adjusted to that you can halve that amount and so on….
