You Ask, I Answer: Alcohol & Weight Loss

tall_beerI would like to know the calorie content for beer, hard liquor and wine.

If you’re trying to lose weight, what kind of alcohol should you stick to/try to avoid?

Is it better to drink wine instead of beer?

As far as calorie figures are concerned, please refer to this post from July 2009.

If weight-loss is your goal, though, liquid calories should be the first to go.

Unless you are talking about homemade smoothies made with whole fruits and fiber-rich ingredients like oat bran and ground flax, liquid calories do very little towards helping you feel full, making it very easy to consume several hundred calories and still feel hungry.

The best alcohol to drink is the one you simply drink less of.

If, for instance, you find that one glass of red wine satisfies you the same way that three beers do, then wine is the best choice.

Wine is not “more fattening” than beer, or vice versa.

That said, keep in mind that mixed drinks are often higher in calories because they also include soda, fruit juice, or cream, all of which add extra calories.

    Nice post…skip the fruity drinks, and if you must do a mixed drink, opt for something like a mint mojito.
