Well, the fam and I are finally moved from the frigid north of   
Chicago to the sweltering heat of Texas.

That means two things...

     No more shoveling a driveway full of snow; and

     Margaritas by the pool with my band of good 'ol boys!

Problem is, mixed drinks are a serious bellyfat expander.  Not   
cool!


The standard 1.5 oz. serving of 80 proof tequila has 96 calories   
straight out of the bottle.

If you add a margarita mix from the bottle, the finished 4 oz.   
cocktail will have 140 calories.

But here's a little kink in the plan...

The average margarita glass is 12 ounces - which puts your glass   
at a whopping 420 calories.

Now a couple of things here...

  *  Who the hell stops at one margarita?

  *  No self-respecting Texan (I now claim resident status) would   
     be caught dead mixing a margarita out of a bottle!

  *  There's a better way to have your margarita without the   
     tons-o-calories!

Here's a skinnier version that won't make you sacrifice taste...

  1.  Combine the juice of 1 lime, 1 single packet of stevia   
     sweetener, 1 ounce of 100% agave tequila, and small amount   
     of natural powdered lemon-flavored drink mix (like a natural   
     version of "Crystal Light" if you can find it) into a metal   
     shaker-cup.

  2.  Shake it up

  3.  Giddyup!

Whole thing is only 78 calories per margarita!

You're welcome! :-)

Look great...feel great...BE GREAT! ;-)
