Slimming World Friendly Alcohol Guide

Your ultimate Slimming friendly guide to alcohol can be found here. What is the best alcohol to drink? Does it contain Syns? Is it full of calories? Are you able to still enjoy a night out whilst trying to lose weight? All of those questions will be answered here.

So whether you are following Slimming World, Weight Watchers or a calorie deficit this post if for you.

Losing weight is a long term life long journey, and if you’re trying to shed a few pounds, you’re likely being very careful with what you eat. Cutting down on portions or following a weight loss plan may seem obvious, but when it comes to alcohol the confusion sets in. Nothing is every off limits, especially when you are following a plan such as Slimming World. You just need to know your limits and how to choose the lowest-calorie alcohol.




How many calories are in alcohol?

For reference, here’s a breakdown of each type of alcohol’s calorie count:

  • Vodka: 1 Shot = Approx 97 Calories
  • Rum:1 Shot = Approx 97 Calories
  • Whiskey, Bourbon,  Brandy and Scotch: 1 Shot = Approx 105 Calories
  • Brandy: 1 Shot = Approx 70 Calories
  • Gin: 1 Shot = Approx 110 Calories
  • Tequila: 1 Shot = Approx 105 Calories
  • Champagne: 1 Glass = 90 calories
  • Beer: 1 Bottle = 153 calories
  • Wine: 1 Small Glass = 123 Calories
  • Baileys: 1 Shot = Approx 147 Calories

This simple breakdown should help you to make a better decision when enjoying a little tipple on a night out. For example a shot of Vodka is a far better choice than a Baileys.. in fact those calories are for 1 shot of Baileys and who on earth ever has just that?

LOOKING FOR SYNS?

We agreed with Slimming World that we would remove the Syns from our food and shopping lists.

LOOKING FOR WEIGHT WATCHERS SMART POINTS?

Since Weight Watchers introduced the new Personal Points plan it is harder to calculate points. This means I can no longer offer exact WW Points for food lists. (I am working on the recipe part).

HOW MANY CALORIES SHOULD I BE CONSUMING PER DAY?

When we eat and drink more calories than we use up, our bodies store the excess as body fat. If this continues, over time we may put on weight. As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day.
These values can vary depending on age, size and levels of physical activity, among other factors. To find out more about calories and losing weight with a calorie controlled plan please visit NHS.

  16. Jane Fork says:

    Great info thanks. Just started Slimming World again after a few years away. Been looking at alcohol by volume versus Syns for hopefully obvious reasons. At first glance Rum seems to be the top of the tree; either on the rocks (not likely for most people) or with a completely sugar free mixer. Has anyone else looked at it on this basis and or have any thoughts on a better option? For comparison 25ml of 40% Rum is 2.5 Syns. Therefore, with Rum, 1 Syn is 4ml of alcohol (25 / 2.5 * 0.4).
