Vodka: Nutritional Information and Calories

Overall

Although drinking vodka and other types of alcohol is fine, it is a good idea to limit how much you drink.  Your body metabolizes alcohol before food, so the less alcohol you drink the sooner your body will get to work on burning the calories from your food.  Alcohol also tends to lead to food cravings, which often causes you to overeat and to eat things that contain lots of calories.  The most important thing to do is to make sure that you are not drinking too much vodka - and if you are trying to lose weight, it may be a good idea to cut vodka out of your diet entirely.

If you are looking for a way to cut down on your calorie intake, the first step would be to see how much vodka you consume and try to cut down on that first.  It is not necessary to cut vodka out of your life altogether, but it is a good idea to limit how much you allow yourself to consume every day and every week.  Alcohol can be a detriment to anyone's diet, so just make sure you are consuming it moderately and keeping track of how much of your calorie intake is from vodka.  If you drink a lot, the calories in vodka can slow down your weight loss.

Vodka: Nutritional Information and Calories

Disadvantages

The calories from the vodka you drink are metabolized before the calories from your food.  In other words, your body burns off all your calories from vodka before it even begins to burn the calories from the food you eat.  Therefore, cutting down on vodka (or cutting it out of your diet completely) is a great way to lose weight more quickly.  The more alcohol you drink, the harder it will be for you to lose weight.

Furthermore, alcohol makes it even more difficult to lose weight because it is normally accompanied by very unhealthy food that contains a lot of calories.  Most of the food that is served in bars is fried and high in empty calories.  What's more, alcohol gives you a false sense of hunger, so you are more likely to consume calories that you wouldn't normally consume.  If you drink less alcohol, you will probably consume less unhealthy food as well.
