Today the Healthy Mummy team are looking at the effects of alcohol and weight loss – especially the link between alcohol and belly fat.
If you’re trying to lose weight and ditch belly bloat by following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge – there are certainly pros to ditching alcohol altogether. However, we understand many of us like the occasional drink at a family get-together, or a glass of red with a fancy dinner.
With that, we are here to remind you that a drink here and there will NOT hold you back from reaching your weight loss goals. WITH THAT SAID….it doesn’t hurt to understand how many calories your favourite alcoholic beverage has.
In this article we reveal the lowest calorie and lowest SUGAR alcoholic beverage.
Can you drink alcohol and still lose belly fat?

So to find the best option for you and your weight loss plan, here is how you can find the lowest calorie drinks.
