Drinking and alcohol

Calories and sugar

When we think about a healthy diet, it’s easy to forget to factor in the drinks and liquids we consume each day.

Alcoholic drinks are made by fermenting and distilling natural starch and sugar – this means that alcohol contains a lot of calories.

By being more aware of the calories and sugar in the alcohol and mixers you drink, you can make better decisions and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
