Holiday Drinking Tips

Alcohol adds empty calories, White says. It also makes you more likely to make poor food choices.

His advice:

  • Have a healthy snack before drinking, so you don’t get tipsy right away.
  • Decide how many alcoholic beverages you will have in advance, and stick to that number.
  • Remember that “drinking in moderation” means no more than 1 drink per day for women and up to 2 drinks per day for men.
  • Know how to read the label on a liquor bottle. The higher the alcohol content, the higher the calories.

One last, but classic, piece of advice: “Remember to keep everything in moderation,” White says.
