DI­ETI­TIAN MONIQUE PIDERIT IN­SPECTS THE CALO­RIES IN AL­CO­HOL

True Love - - HEALTH -

Per glass, both red wine and white wine have the same num­ber of kilo­joules. The only dif­fer­ence is that red wine is rich in an­tiox­i­dants from the red grape skins used to make it.

1 flute of cham­pagne, 340ml beer or cider, 1 medium glass (150ml) of dry red and white wine, 2 white wine spritzers, a dou­ble tot (30ml) of te­quila, brandy, gin, vodka or whiskey all equal 500 kJ.

Just like sug­ar­sweet­ened drinks, mix­ers con­tain more calo­ries and are the equiv­a­lent of 8 tea­spoons of sugar per drink.

Use lower or kilo­joule-free mix­ers like sugar-free fizzy drinks, sparkling wa­ter, soda or min­eral wa­ter to mix. Tonic Wa­ter won’t help with weight loss.
