And I’m not just talking about the food.
The hidden danger is in all the alcoholic drinks and cocktails that’s being
offered to you. Yes, those party drinks can do more harm other than just
getting you intoxicated and embarassingly uninhibited!
Did you know that these drinks contain an incredible number of calories?
In fact, alcohol is the number two most energy-dense food, losing out only
to fat. Fat has 9 calories per gram, and alcohol comes in a close second at a
whopping 7 calories per gram.
What this means is that each alcoholic drink you consume will cause you to
take in an alarmingly high number of calories.
Here’s a sample of some of the more popular drinks, together with their
1 glass of Bailey’s lrish Cream – 468 calories
1 glass of Margarita – 453 calories
1 glass of Martini – 413 calories
1 glass of Pina Colada – 297 calories
1 glass of Vodka Cranberry – 250 calories
1 glass of Rum & cola – 240 calories
1 glass of Screwdriver – 200 calories
1 mug of beer – 150 calories
1 glass of white wine – 120 calories
1 tequila shot – 100 calories
To put those calorie counts into perspective, I’d like to just point out that 2
glasses of Margaritas would have given you about _half_ of your daily
calories requirements. Yes, 50% from just 2 drinks.
And we have not even included the calories from the food, nuts and snacks
yet! Once we add those in, can you see how easy it is for you to go over the
daily calorie requirements, and start piling on the pounds?
Now, this doesn’t mean that you should stay away from the alcoholic drinks.
It’s just that when you drink, you should keep in mind the huge amount of
calories in the drinks.
