Calories in Alcohol
Did you know a standard glass of wine can contain as many calories as a bar of chocolate, and a pint of lager has about the same number of calories as a packet of crisps? So, if you’re trying to lose weight you need to think about what you are drinking as well as what you are eating.
Drinking 4 bottles of wine a month adds up to a yearly consumption of around 27,000kcal, which is equivalent to eating 48 Big Macs per year. Drinking 5 pints of lager each week adds up to 44,200kcal over a year, equivalent to eating 221 doughnuts.
