Calories from cocktails don’t fill you up like calories from food. “And, after one or two drinks, you may be more likely to say yes to that pecan pie.” For every alcoholic drink, you should down two glasses of water to fill you up and keep you hydrated. Then, pick low calorie cocktails to avoid loosing your figure.
