Drink Smart
There’s nothing wrong with having a cocktail or two, but the next time you’re drinking one, consider these points:\r\n

\r\nHaving only two glasses of red wine as opposed to four translates into saving about 300 calories a night. Over the course of a year, that’s 21 cups of sugar, equating to a five pound weight loss.\r\n

\r\nInstead of wine, try a vodka with soda water – you’ll save around 100 calories. Flavored vodka with soda water provides a bubbly burst of sweetness without the excessive sugar or calories.\r\n
