Holiday Drinks Will Make You Fat
Q. Glen, With the Holidays approaching I am watching what I eat! But can I have a few drinks?
A. When most people think of holiday weight gain, they concentrate more on what they're eating than what they're drinking. However, sipping on high-calorie, high-fat beverages can be just as damaging to your diet. If you don't want to bulge, then watch how you indulge. Check out these diet-derailing drinks. Just six ounces of eggnog has 257 calories and 14 grams of fat. A hot toddy will set you back 200 calories for just two ounces. A martini such as a Cosmopolitan can add up to 800 calories for just one drink. A margarita can cost you about 400 calories.
Glen's Bottom Line: If you don't want to bulge, then watch how you indulge!
