Are you drink-savvy?

Are you drink-savvy?Anyone slimming down for their upcoming summer holidays needs to remember the hidden calories in their favourite tipple.

Laura Williams, fitness guru, said that people are always amazed by the amount of calories in the average alcoholic drink, something particularly important to note when letting your hair down on vacation.

“If you drink loads of creamy cocktails and pints of lager while you’re away it’s going to have a huge effect on your waistline. It won’t fill you up, so you’ll need to eat on top of that,” she said.

Slimmers can still enjoy a drink on holiday but need to remember to make sensible choices, such as gin and slim, with Ms Williams suggesting those wanting to lose weight get drink-savvy this summer.

Fat photos, many of which are taken from a less than flattering angle on holiday, are still the number one motivation for losing weight.

This is getting even more common with so many photos on Facebook, but Ms Williams said that if it prompts positive change it cannot really be a bad thing.
