How to drink light and right during a Super Bowl party

You're heading to a Super Bowl party, but you've vowed to avoid the dips, the chips, and the wings at all costs. Still, it is a celebration, so a few beers or mixed drinks couldn't do too much harm .... Or could they?

We usually don't think of them in the same league as junk food. Yet the calories from beverages can add up quickly, especially if they contain alcohol. One gram of alcohol has 7 calories, compared with 4 for carbs and protein. So ounce for ounce, you can consume almost twice as much carbs and protein for the same number of calories!

So as you celebrate the Super Bowl, you need to keep track of and make smart decisions about your beverage consumption. The choice is yours to decide -- where would you prefer to get your calories?

Portion Distortion

A glass of wine or beer has roughly 125 to 150 calories, right? Maybe, it depends on the size of the glass and how often you refill that glass. It is hard to know exactly how much you have consumed because all too often, the glass is continually refilled. It is safe to say that the average serving size of wine and alcoholic beverages is usually more than you think it is.

The savvy dieter finishes one serving then switches to a nonalcoholic, noncaloric beverage such as sparkling water before considering another serving of alcohol. This way, you not only reduce the risk of over-consuming calories and alcohol, but this strategy also helps meet your fluid needs. And your head will thank you in the morning when you awake feeling chipper without a hangover!

Not only do cocktails boost calories, but they also have a powerful impact on mood and inhibitions. Your resolve can be really strong going into that party but after a few drinks, you may find yourself mindlessly overeating the nuts, dips, or whatever food is within striking distance. Yet another reason to limit your consumption!

Nonalcoholic Thirst Quenchers

Soft drinks usually come in 12-ounce cups and add a good 150 calories per serving. While 150 calories might not sound like a lot, it is mostly sugar. Super size it and you can pack away 400 calories without a blink of an eye. What's worse, the liquid calories fulfill your thirst but do little to satisfy hunger. Artificially sweetened beverages are a fine alternative but even those should be limited to a few servings per day.
