Calories in Alcohol



Did you know that a glass of wine has the same calories as a slice of cake? How about a pint of lager – surprised to hear it’s the calorific equivalent of a burger?
In a 2009 Department of Health survey of 2,000 adults, four in 10 admitted they didn’t know those facts about calories in alcohol.

Alcohol is full of empty calories. High in carbohydrates and sometimes high in fat (from cream based drinks), alcohol is an easy way to cut from your diet and help your waistline.

A typical cosmopolitan is 150 calories and a pint of beer is 110-200 calories. If you want a killer drink, literally, a pina colada has 300-600 calories in a glass. That is more than a Big Mac! Cream drinks like the pina colada use coconut cream, heavy cream or some other cream.
