Ordinary soft drinks and alcoholic beverages give you far more calories than you should have, and they have no nutricional value. These are so-called "empty calories."
But consider the following list of thrist--quenchers. They are all refreshing and low in calories:
BEVERAGE CALORIES IN 8-OUNCE GLASS
Iced tea with slice of lemon 0
Carbonated water with a
tablespoon orange juice 15
Vegetable juice 40
Tomato juice 50
Unsweetened orange juice or
grapefruit juice 105-115
1/2 fruit or vegetable juice
and 1/2 carbonated water 50-55
Skim milk 90
1% low-fat milk 110
2% low-fat milk 130
Note that when you combine fruit juice with carbonated water, using four ounces of each beverage, you end up with half the calories you would have with pure fruit juice.
If you must have an alcoholic beverage occasionally, make it a glass of light white wine. This will give you less than half the calories you'd get in a Martini.
