Let’s start with my fit tip for the day: fight back happy hour calories!

FTT Cocktail Hour

Trying to cut back on calories can really interfere with a social life. How do you get the best of both worlds? You could do the good old trick of ordering a water in between cocktails to cut calories in half and keep you from drinking too much (read: later eating too much). But that’s so boooring and you have to explain to everyone why you’re ordering water, and I don’t know about you, but I always feel a little left out with a big water glass instead of a fruity cocktail.

The solution? Ask the bartender to serve you sparkling water instead of flat. Bonus? Get it in a cute glass with some fruit in it! The fruit will add some flavor, and you get to feel more relaxed about watching your calories. The bartender probably sees hoards of too-drunk girls all the time, and will definitely respect you for asking, so it’s not embarrassing at all.

    The go to drink that I like to SIP on that’s inconspicuously non-alcoholic looking is “the Mojito!” I get it without the sugar and alcohol….so your sipping on refreshing mineral water, a a splash of lemon juice with crushed mint leaves! I’ve had friends that like it both ways…and your a sober hit!

    • Lisa @ The Skinny on Health

      Such a great tip! Thanks!


  • The Healthy Collective

    Great Tips from everyone!

  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog

    What a great tip! I agree that sometimes being out with friends is all about having that drink in front of you or in your hand, not necessarily the actual drink.

  • Feeedingbb

    I’m not an alcohol drinker due for religious reasons but I know a lot of people looking for tips like this. I’m sure it’s really useful.

  • Rachel @ Betty LIVIN

    I love all these tips! Thanks for starting this, I’ll have to check in to this post throughout the day to read more tips!

    • Lisa @ The Skinny on Health

      Thanks for joining! :) It’s brand new, so I’m not expecting too many posts. It’ll grow every week (hopefully)!


  • Erin @ The Almond Eater

    Great tip! I do struggle with happy hour calories at times, though thankfully my friends and I are usually on the same page and will only have 1-2 drinks and call it a day. We’re CRAZY hhaa.

    Love having a link-up that favors the West coast time for once :) For some reason, your button isn’t showing up in my post. I’ll have to play around with it a little bit to figure it out. Crazy technology!

    • Lisa @ The Skinny on Health

      Oh no! Someone else had an issue with that too. Are you putting the code in the html section, not the text section? It may be that. If it doesn’t work, you’re welcome to download the button picture and manually link it to the main post. (I can try to explain this if you don’t know how to do that!)

      Hopefully it works! Thanks for linking up love!


    • Lisa @ The Skinny on Health

      Oh I just checked and it’s working on your post! :)

      • Kathryn@ Illustrated Nutrition

        Yeah, for whatever reason I copied the code from this specific post and it worked. I was putting it in the html section (and then read your comment), but this one still worked! yay!
