When it comes to maintaining a healthy diet, alcohol can seem like something to be avoided at all costs. However, this needn’t be the case. In fact, when consumed in moderation, the odd glass or two of wine can be a welcome addition to any healthy diet. The key word, of course, is moderation. For a guide, one small glass of wine will come to around 100 calories, which can be ‘paid’ for relatively easy with a few minutes of additional exercise. For a few ways to burn off 100 calories, take a look at our list here.
However, not all alcoholic drinks are so healthy. A neat whiskey, for instance, will come in at around 200 calories, whereas a Long Island iced tea can contain as many as 400 calories. Therefore, the best course of action is to keep consumption to a minimum. A small glass of wine or half a can of beer is fine every three or four days.
Alternatively, you could always abstain for the week and go for a large glass or a whole can during the weekend.
