Even the strictest fitness buffs need to unwind sometimes and enjoy a drink or two. Believe it or not, they don’t live on green tea and cucumber water alone. Enjoy some of these drinks in moderation. And rest assured, you can still keep your body looking A1.
Here Are 6 Low-Calorie Drinks That Hot Fit Chicks Order At The Bar:
1. Vodka Shots
If you just want to cut to the chase(r), forget a sugary mixed drink. You’re there to get tipsy, so do it! A shot of vodka has roughly 100 calories compared to the 550 calories in a 10oz margarita. The average beer contains about 154 calories a can. Taking a quick shot of vodka, especially if it’s the smooth stuff, can save you a lot of money and calories. “I have always been a fan of vodka shots,” says Anna Victoria, personal trainer and creator of the Fit Body Guides, “I don’t love the taste of alcohol, so I can drink a chaser right after and get on with the fun part.” Amen to that. Bring on the sloppy dancing and embarrassing selfies.
This one is an old-timey drink. I remember my grandpa making one before dinner when I was a kid. The gimlet is making a comeback this summer, and Barry’s Bootcamp trainer, Astrid Swan, swears by this drink. She orders it with gin and lime juice and stops after one drink, mostly because she’s a lightweight drinker (even if she’s a heavy lifter). “A few sips in and I could dance on tables!” says the instructor. She is one of the most mindful drinkers too, as she makes sure to eat beforehand and drink a whole glass of water with Emergen-C just to replenish her body from that one drink. It’s always good to restore your vitamins and minerals before you sleep.
