Alcohol and Calories

Did you know that a glass of wine has the same calorie content as a slice of cake and that a pint of lager is the calorific equivalent of a burger?

Alcoholic drinks are made by fermenting natural starch and sugars - this includes drinks such as wine, beer, cider and spirits. High sugar content in your drink equates to high calorie content. Calories in alcohol are 'empty' calories as they have no nutritional content what so ever.
