Calories in Alcohol – Estimate how many you drink.

Posted on | February 19, 2012 | No Comments

Find how how many calories you are drinking!

If you are a Health Guru fan you’ll know that this month I’m ‘Febfasting’ – no drinking for the whole month of Feb.  I’m past the halfway mark now, and so far so good.  I must admit, there’s been some tough days where drinking a nice ice cold beer would have been fantastic, but I’m determined to make it through.  I think the most surprising thing is how much more energy and focus I have, as well as the noticeable weight loss.  At the halfway mark, I’ve easily dropped 2kg.

Which has me asking myself – really…. 2kg… does giving up a few drinks a week make such a difference?  And the answer is yes.  Like everything, when you don’t take a look at the big picture, it’s easy to wave off that casual alcoholic drink here or there and not consider that part of your daily energy intake.

So if you too are interested in how many calories you are drinking, simply click on the image in this blog entry which will take you to an easy to use calorie estimator. Simply enter in how many ‘standard’ drinks you have and calculate how many calories you drink.

Now, to lose 1/2 kg of body fat each week, it’s recommended to drop 300 calories from your daily intake of food and/or burn off an extra doing exercise.  So, if you use the calculator and have an average of 300 calories per day intake, consider – if you give up drinking (or even reduce) you could lose 1/2 kg per week.
