I wish that champagne had been included in the article. It's the "traditional" drink of New Year's and I'd stick with that all night if I had a choice.
yay ! I needed this info since it' sthe holidays and drinks and family gatherings are the order.
Ok, here's my problem...the nutrition tracker does not differentiate between the types of wine or liquor. Granted the calories differences are minimal but when you're counting every one - especially during the holidays - I like to think the info I get in the tracker is accurate!
This makes me think twice when I enjoy my vodka drinks during the weekend. I will be trying to find healthier alternatives.
Tried the vodka soda and liked it. Wow who knew.
ALCHOHOL SUPPRESSES FAT OXIDATION ,BUT THE BIGGEST FACTOR IS DEFINATELY THE CALORIES AND WITH ANY BOOZE HOUND THEY'RE ALWAYS COUNTING UP, LIKE NASA'S" COUNTDOWN"1 BEER 2 BEERS 3 BEERS" tAKE OFF"260 CALORIES (AND STILL)... COUNTING!(BECAUSE NOW YOU CAN REALLY SLAM THEM)
hello fellow LIFE enthusiasts!!! Now... though wine may be lower in calories then beer, beer contains chronium(or at least most beers do)and chromium has most been known to speed up the rate of the performance from your metabolism but ON THE OTHER HAND all alchohol speeds up cortisol levels, which leads to fat cell harbouring...YUCK! I'M NOT SURE WHICH WOULD OUTWAY THE OTHER AS IT IS CIRCUMSTANTIAL! let's hope overall chromium is the champion!!!!
I LOVE CHIPS AHOY- The charts show calories both per oz AND per serving size.
MGD64 is a light beer made by miller. it stands for miller genuine draft and 64 is because it is only 64 calories, not 95. I actually like the taste but you are more likely to drink more than 1 because you do not feel the effects as quickly as you would with another light beer....
very useful and interesting article - however, too many typos. It says nutritional information per ounce and then the table says nutrional info per 1.5 oz so it's a bit confusing.
I love Carlo Rossi Sangria. its a red wine that comes in a big jug for 12 bucks. I wonder the calorie content of it because its so sweet.
i did stop drinking beer although i love it and i have started drinking wine a glass or 2! this article answered some things i was curious about.
This article states that vodka contains 69 calories per oz, but in the SparkPeople nutrition tracker, SP's vodka listing has 64.2 calories per oz.
I know it's not a huge difference, but I was wondering about the variation...?
what is mgd64 ?????
Ok its good to know that alcohol is absorbed first. I do love my wine (especially chardonay) so Im glad I get a little brake there. Obviously in moderation. I can forgo snacking when I drink, its more fun.
