All calories count and not all calories are created equal. Many people overlook calories that come from beverages, especially alcohol. If you’re been committed to daily exercise and swapped salads for sandwiches but aren’t seeing the results you want, it’s time to think about what’s in your cup.
It can be quite easy to cancel out a workout or healthy meal with just a couple drinks. For example, if you have a 12-ounce regular beer it’s roughly 150 calories (compared to a light beer of about 100 calories). Wine will set you back about 120 calories for every five ounces and mixed drinks can cost anywhere from 100 to 150 calories per drink.
In addition to calories from drinking, many people find that they eat more or differently during happy hours or other social events. Think before you drink, and especially before you go for a second round. For more information, visit: http://www.livescience.com/52990-alcohol-calories-weight-loss-be-healthy.html
