Bacardi gives you 66 low calorie reasons why you don’t have to give up on cocktails to stick to your fitness plan in the New Year.  Bacardi Rum has 0 carbohydrates and 0 sugars.  When paired with your favorite diet cola the two become the ideal alternative low calorie cocktail. 

Even though the New Year just rolled around, swimsuit season is just on the horizon.  Yikes!  Many make resolutions that center around weight loss due to the dreaded traditional holiday weight gain.  As Cortney Silverman points out, “With the holiday pounds still present and the colder months bringing “hibernation weight,” Bacardi and diet cola is a great alternative that won’t add more weight to your winter routine.”
