Most of us don’t think about how many calories are in a beer or glass of wine. But those calories still count if you’re trying to be healthy. This graphic from the folks at Greatist shows you exactly how heavy that oatmeal stout really is.
The graphic below breaks down some of the most popular drinks, beers, wine varietals and mixers by alcohol by volume (ABV), calories per serving and calories from alcohol. For those of you watching your carb intake, that’s listed as well. Ultimately, you can use the data to pick healthier options (or make your own healthier, tastier cocktails at home) or be mindful of what you’re drinking when you’re at the pub.
The big takeaway here is that drinks really do count when you’re watching your caloric intake. But you don’t have to switch to watered-down light beers and so-called “diet drinks” if you’re trying have a good time and stick to a diet. All you need to do is remember that your glass of wine or beer should find a place in your food journal. Check out the full graphic below or hit the link to see it over at Greatist.
