The Sydney-based founders of science-based nutrition program Equalution Jade Spooner, 27, and Amal Wakim, 26, said drinking is inevitable on some social occasions, but pointed out that alcohol is often the primary reason why results are not ‘achieved or optimal in a body transformation’.

The nutrition experts said it is possible to drink on Melbourne Cup day and not gain weight.

‘You can make smarter choices like spirits and diet sodas or even limiting your number of beverages or tapering back on your food intake throughout the day,’ they said. 

Jade and Amal also said they just advise that you remember that an ‘alcohol-fuelled weekend’ or big day out can counteract an entire week of hard work.

This isn’t the first time the health experts have drawn attention to the importance of liquid calories. 

Previously, they have shown how three Sangria cocktails equates to the same number of calories as three classic Magnum ice creams (780 calories).

The same can be said of three Aperol Spritzes, which they said equates to the same number of calories as 7.5 glasses of Prosecco (660 calories).

‘If you have plans to go out and drink, our tips are to increase your protein during the day to meet your minimum requirement,’ Jade and Amal said.

‘You should also decrease your fats and carbs to leave enough calories for your alcoholic beverages.’

Lastly, the founders recommend if you’re drinking, you up your water intake, to ensure you’re adequately hydrated. 

‘Drinks are a significant calorie clocker for a lot of dieters who are unaware that if you’re drinking it can STILL be as calorie dense as a meal itself,’ they wrote.
