Let us solve this problem immediately: any form of excessive alcohol is harmful to your health. After all, alcohol itself has little health benefits. Long-term drinking may damage the liver. Further hidden side effects include cancer risk, osteoporosis, infertility, weight gain, depression, slurred speech, pancreatitis and heart disease. Whether you are drinking low-alcohol beer or high-alcohol hard liquor, or the most exotic French wine, excessive drinking can cause serious damage to your body.
Of course, this does not mean that all alcoholic beverages are the same. Lightweight, low-calorie beer may be better for you than beer with a better taste and 450 calories. And, if you are a hard candy lover, please know that putting your favorite rum neatly in a small glass will not look like the classic daiquiri in Hemingway style to your body Drinking the same amount of rum in a mixture is as harmful. Contains a high dose of simple syrup. (One ounce of syrup contains more than 5 teaspoons of added sugar. As we have reported in the past, adding too much sugar can cause more belly fat, increase blood pressure, affect brain function, cause sagging skin, and kill you Doubling the risk of heart disease.)
Everything begs the question: should you absolutely avoid the worst alcoholic beverages? And, if so, what is it? According to at least one registered dietitian, there is a clear answer. Sports nutritionist Leslie Bonci (Leslie Bonci) said: “The problem of mixed drinks is more serious.”
Bonci pointed out three specific beverages that you should avoid. She said that all of these beverages are competing for the “worst alcoholic beverage” distinction, and it all depends on how they are prepared and how big they are: Piña Coladas, Margaritas and Long Island Iced Tea.
Gizmodo reports: “Piña Colada has more than 650 calories, which is more than Big Mac’s 576.” According to most recipes, Piña Colada contains some combination of rum, coconut milk, coconut cream, pineapple juice and lemon juice. In other words, they are full of sugar. Overall, as we have reported in the past, the typical garden variety Piña Colada contains about 40 grams of sugar per eight-ounce serving, which is why it ranks number one among the worst cocktails on our planet. To make matters worse, coconut cream contains healthy saturated fats.
Eight ounces of Margarita comes in with a staggering 274 calories and 36.1 grams of sugar. But you may already know very well that margaritas are different everywhere, and it is not uncommon for people to drink more than eight ounces. British Medical Journal Once ranked the worst drink in the United States, and selected “traditional lobster” as a particularly bad actor from red lobster.Researchers pointed out that this huge 24-ounce cocktail has 890 calories and 183 grams of carbohydrates, which is equivalent to diet Seven Almond Delight Candy Bar. The researchers wrote: “Of all the annoying drinks we have analyzed, what surprised us the most about lobster is that just downgrading it to a regular margarita on the rocks can save you 640 calories.
Meanwhile, Long Island Iced Tea contains vodka, gin, gin, tequila, three seconds, sweet and sour blend, lemon juice, simple syrup and cola. Gizmodo wrote: “A LIIT can have up to 780 calories.” “In addition, all this alcohol immediately enters your system like a freight train. In addition, the only thing that can dilute this beverage will only add more sugar. “
If you turn a new page in the new year, consider doing an extra check on your favorite mixed drink, and then put any changes to these three cocktails in the rearview mirror. For more bad drinks you should avoid, see below, because we have compiled some of the worst drinks here. According to experts, for more advice on drinking responsibly, make sure you know the most dangerous drinking age.
Like many frozen margaritas and Piña Coladas, Mudslides are rich in sugar. RDN Ms. Lauren Harris-Pincus previously told us: “The Ultimate Mudslide from TGI Friday’s contains vodka, Baileys, Kahlua, cream and ice cream, and packs up to 740 calories, 26 grams of fat and 86 grams of sugar.” Eat this, not like that. “If you pay attention, the sugar in a drink is nearly four days [the] American Heart Association guidelines. “
Daiquiri contains about 40 grams of sugar on average, which is the same as the sugar content in four Krispy Kreme glazed donuts.
Whiskey sourness is another popular cocktail, often rich in sugar.
Did you make cocktails at home during isolation? Go on for that! But please avoid using ginger beer as a blender. It is full of sugar-if it is paired with regular old ginger beer, the effect will be better.
The spiked eggnog is a classic holiday, but it is far from a health food. Milk, cream and eggs can be full, but they can also be made into cocktails with enough calories to match a meal. No wonder eggnog is one of the 40 that we should not drink after 40.
