Am I healthy?
A bottle of wine contains over 600 calories. You'll need to run for over an hour to burn off those additional calories in every bottle that you drink.
Cutting out 5 pints of lager will decrease your calorie consumption by up to 900 calories. It helps to spread your alcohol intake evenly across the week, rather than having lots of units within one day.
Drinking beyond the recommended 14 units of alcohol a week? Cutting down below the guideline can reduce the risks - and also reduce your calorie intake by the equivalent of 4 burgers.
Choosing a bottle of beer rather than a full pint is a small step towards reducing your alcohol consumption. Drinking 6 bottles of beer per week, rather than 6 pints, could save you over 200 calories - and bring you back below the recommended 14 units a week.
Ordering a slimline gin & tonic rather than choosing a full fat mixer could save you 55 calories per drink. Due to the added sugars in tonic water as well as other full fat mixers, selecting diet options helps reduce the number of calories you consume.
A standard 5% alcopop bottle contains around 5 teaspoons of sugar and 171 calories. Drink just 4 bottles in a week and you'd need to do 2.5 hours of moderate exercise to lose all those extra calories.
