Lisa Lillien Cocktail Recipes: Tonic Water Vs Club Soda Calories
Lisa Lillien said that most people don’t realize how many calories are in the mixers they use to make drinks. Alcohol is already high in calories, but you could be making it worse depending on what you mix with it.
Tonic Water is not the same as Club Soda or water. In fact, Tonic Water is full of as many calories and as much sugar as a regular soda. Skip the Tonic and stick to Club Soda.
Dr Oz: Hungry Girl Eggnog Recipe
Eggnog is popular in the winter months, but it has 20 grams of fat and 420 calories in just one cup! Lisa said you can actually make your own healthier version using instant vanilla pudding mix, giving you the creamy texture without the calories.
This recipe has 155 calories and only 1.5 grams of fat.
