So how many calories in Jack Daniels are there, you ask? Lets take a look.
Jack Daniels has 66 calories per ounce. The average shot is 1.5 ounces. That means a shot of Jack Daniels whiskey has 99 calories in it. Thats quite a lot given the small serving size of just 1.5 ounces. Jack Daniels is commonly mixed with cola. One 12 ounce can of Coke has 145 calories in it. Combine that with 99 calories from a shot and youre looking at a staggering 244 calories!
If you want to enjoy a Jack and Coke without totally blowing your weight loss efforts then consider using Diet Cola and just a one ounce shot. That keeps the total number of calories at just 66. Quite a bit less than the 244. Alcohol can be consumed as part of a healthy diet. Many studies, including one done by Harvard University, even show that small amounts of alcohol on a regular basis are good for you because they reduce the risk of cancer. Health experts recommend people trying to lose weight to limit their alcohol to no more than two drinks per week. Why? Because alcohol has empty calories in it that provide no nutrition that add up fast.
Just make sure to limit your consumption and mix the drink with low calorie options.
