Beware the Calories

Most people are aware that drinking alcohol can be bad for your health, but generally the impact in terms of calories is not the first thing that comes to mind. However, the calories in many drinks can be higher than you think, with a glass of wine equivalent to a slice of cake or a pint of lager similar to a doughnut.

On an average night out drinking 3 or 4 glasses of wine or a few pints isn’t considered over doing it, but most would think twice of eating that many slices of cake or doughnuts in an evening. When you add to this the tendency to eat fatty foods such as chips or kebabs after a few drinks, and the big fry up breakfasts to combat hangovers, it’s easy to see the problems. However, so long as you are aware of the impact then enjoying a night out isn’t a problem. Like anything it’s moderation that’s the key.
