Alcohol and calories

Another bit of 'bad news' to do with alcohol, certainly for those of us how have to fight the flab – is that it is full of energy or calories.

The energy content of pure alcohol is 29.3 kilojoules per gram. Thus, a normal bottle of wine will contain about 500 calories, which works out at about 80 calories a glass.

Neither is a pint of beer calorie free: the term beer gut is not applied without reason.
