Alcohol

Did you know that the pure alcohol in your drink is as fattening whatever drink it's in? So, it's no more fattening in beer than in wine for example. With around seven calories per gram, alcohol contains almost the same calories as pure fat. Different alcoholic drinks have different calorie contents and it's important that we understand what's in our drink and how it can affect our weight.
In addition, many alcoholic drinks are also high in sugar meaning we could be consuming lots of empty calories, which could lead to weight gain, putting our long term health at risk.
To keep health risks from alcohol to a low level if you drink most weeks, the NHS advises:

  • men and women not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis
  • spread your drinking over three or more days if you regularly drink as much as 14 units a week
  • if you want to cut down, try to have several drink-free days each week
    So how much is 14 units? Less than you might think — 14 units is equivalent to six pints of average-strength beer or 10 small glasses of low-strength wine.
