Unfortunately along with resisting the temptation of holiday treats, there is also the temptation of celebrating with a social drink of champagne, wine, eggnog, or other favorites. Alcoholic drinks are not calorie free. In fact, alcohol yields 7 calories per gram. An alcoholic beverage can provide twice as many calories per ounce as carbohydrates and fats. A 12-ounce can of beer has about 150 calories, while a 4 ounce glass of wine will provide about 90 calories. A glass of spiked eggnog is about 300 calories. While on your Diet Center program, you should not consume any alcohol, as it interferes with the metabolism of nutrients and may stimulate your appetite. It also does not provide any significant nutrients.

If you choose to drink alcohol, try to limit yourself to one serving. You can also try alternating alcoholic drinks with nonalcoholic ones. The best thing you can do for yourself to continue progress in your program is to not consume any alcohol. Enjoy diet sodas, sugar-free hot cocoas, or nutritious Diet Center drinks such as a Gold Premium Protein Shake or Wild Berry Drink. Keep in mind that there will be many times in life that you may want to celebrate or socialize with a drink or two. It’s a habit you should make an effort to develop to reach and maintain your weight loss goal.
