If you are trying to maintain or to lose weight, but still enjoy going out with friends at the weekend, then you could be undoing all of your hard work in shedding those pounds just by having a few drinks to help you relax. The reason for this is that alcohol does tend to have quite a lot of calories and what follows are the top 7 fattening alcoholic drinks that you really should look at avoiding if you don’t want to gain weight.
1. Beer – When looking at fattening alcoholic drinks, no list is complete without mentioning normal beer as you will tend to find that it is going to have anywhere between 150 to 250 calories per beer and around 7g of carbohydrates. It will instantly become clear how drinking several of them will lead to you consuming a lot of calories in just a couple of hours and do not be fooled into thinking that light beer is going to be completely different because this tends to still have around 100 calories so the name “light” is perhaps a bit misleading at certain times.
