Reading Time: 3 minutes

Today is international beer day, as if we needed an excuse to have a drink after a long week at work. If there’s one thing we love more than a well-deserved tipple, it’s a low-calorie well-deserved tipple. Now, with restrictions being lifted and socialising back in full swing we know how easy it is to clock up extra calories with evenings and weekends spent at pubs, restaurants and bars. Thus, with the help of our nutritionist Heather, we have ranked a list of the top 10 alcoholic beverages for you to enjoy with peace of mind that you’re not sabotaging your weight loss goals.

Let’s raise a glass to guilt-free drinking. Cheers!
