Alcohol Calorie Calculator
An article in BBC Health reminds readers that alcohol is full of empty calories with little to no nutritional value. Literature and government guidelines tell us that light to moderate consumption of alcohol is crucial to a healthy lifestyle. If you are someone who does enjoy a drink occasionally, it’s important to consider how many calories are in that drink and that those empty calories can substantially contribute to weight gain. The World Cancer Research Fund has created an Alcohol Calorie Calculator which shows how many chocolate digestive biscuits would need to be consumed for equivalent caloric intake. Perhaps your caloric indulgences aren’t a chocolate biscuit, however this calculator also gives you a good idea how long you must briskly walk to burn off those calories.
