Earlier, Australian nutritionist Sara Di Lorenzo named several ways to lose weight without giving up alcohol.
According to Di Lorenzo, it is important to understand how many calories are in different alcoholic drinks. The most dangerous for the figure are cocktails and drinks containing sweet syrups and soda. For example, a doctor advises drinking gin and soda, rather than gin and tonic, because in the first option there are only 83 kilocalories, and in the second – 183.
