Drink Less

Want to lose weight? Then you need to know the number of calories in alcoholic drinks.

There are more calories in your alcoholic drinks that you might think. And they soon add up.

Alcoholic drinks are made by fermenting and distilling natural starch and sugar. Being high in sugar means alcohol contains lots of calories.

Calories from alcohol are known as ‘empty calories’ as they have no nutritional value. With a pint of beer containing the same amount of calories as a slice of cake, the calories in alcohol soon add up.

Cutting back on the amount you drink can significantly help to reduce your calorie intake.
