Did you know that tonic water and vodka have a good amount of calories? In fact, a 12 ounce can of tonic water has 124 calories and ounces of vodka carries 128 calories. This means a Grey Goose Tonic, my preferred drink, carries almost 250 calories! I had no clue this drink had so many calories! After a month of traveling in October, I found out that I packed on 10 pounds. At first I thought it was because of the over-eating, lack of exercise and sleep. Tonight I learned, to my horror, that the drinks I had drank almost every other night may be one of the main causes of the extra weight.
I think I had an average of 3 Grey Goose Tonics each time I was out drinking, that’s in addition to the wine during dinner and shots that would follow later on. With a Snickers bar having about the same amount of calories as a Grey Goose Tonic, that means I ate at least 3 candy bars each night! That’s crazy!
