Alcoholic Drinks Add 100 Calories a Day to Average Adult's Diet: Study
Date:11/15/2012

ple are sticking to these limits. However, 20 percent of men and 6 percent of women consume more than 300 calories worth of alcohol on a given day, which is more than two drinks and greater than the one drink specified in the dietary guidelines.

For the report, "one drink" equaled a 12-ounce serving of a beer or wine cooler, 8 ounces of malt liquor, 5 ounces of table wine and 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits.

But even 100 calories per day can add up to overweight if people aren't careful, one nutritionist said.

Connie Diekman, director of university nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis, said that 100 calories per day from alcohol translates to a 10-pound-per-year weight gain if the calories are in addition to their normal daily intake. "This data provides important information for helping consumers understand 'where are my calories coming from?'" she said.

Eric Rimm, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, agreed that the report is "a good accounting of the current drinking in the U.S. and the calories that are derived from those beverages."

But he added that measuring alcohol consumption on a given day may not give the full picture when it comes to individuals. "On a given day when people eat French fries they may make up 25 percent of your total calories," Rimm said. "But most people don't eat French fries every day."
