The alcohol awareness charity Drinkaware published details of a survey in May 2011 suggesting that dieters were unaware of how many calories were in the drink they take - so - even though they may avoid a certain food or
pudding they may still keep on the weight.
A comparison table has been drawn up -
1 glass of champagne = 95 calories = a slice of treacle tart.
1 glass of wine = 134 calories = 1 choc ice.
2 gin and tonics = 104 calories = 2 yorkshire puddings.
3 pints of 5% lager = 727 calories = an all day breakfast.
1 pint of 4% lager = 193 calories = 1 sugar coated doughnut.
