4th of July...Get Drunk, Not Fat.

I'm not sure what it is about America...but give us any holiday (4th of July, MLK Day, Christmas...oh wait, it's a Chinese New Year?! Sure, add that in too), and we will drink to it. We love to celebrate any cause. Unfortunately, when you're dieting, those holidays can waste away those past couple of weeks of weight loss you've spent all your time and energy on.

I just found this new website, and am in love. It's called Get Drunk, not Fat. So thanks to these people, I am able to give you ways to...well...get drunk and not fat, this 4th of July.

1. Rum and Diet (Or CokeZero). A normal drink is about 2 oz of liquor to about 1 cup of mixer. Really, however much you'd like. 1 glass= 115 calories.

2. Sour Apple Martini. Mix 2.5oz of sour mix, 3/4oz of three olive vodka, 3/4oz sour apple liqueur (not midori!), shake until cold and serve up. Only 160 calories!
3. Champagne. A 4oz glass of that yummy bubbly is 85 calories. 

4. Michelob Ultra. If you're a beer drinker, you know that it's almost impossible to find a low calorie good tasting beer. But if you want a lighter beer, go for a Mich Ultra at 95 calories.

5. Yuengling Premium Light. I'm proud to say, we've got our own Yuengling brewery right here in great ol' Tampa Bay. A nice yuengling light will only set you back 99 calories. I'll have to give this one a try!

So happy drinking to you! Of course, everything in moderation, and don't drink and drive :)
