Forum – Weight Loss Tips – JOIN AC Weight Loss Program Q. Is alcohol bad for weight loss?
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram, so it’s nearly twice as fattening as carbohydrates or protein.
In addition, alcohol can encourage us to eat high fat nibbles, or high fat desserts. This leads to extra calorie intake and can cause weight gain.
Calories in Sample Drinks
4 Fluid oz Wine 95 calories 1 Brandy/Whiskey 125 calories 12 Fluid oz Beer 145 calories Regular soft drink 80-100 calories
Weight loss depends on your overall calorie intake. Reduce your calories by 3500 and you will lose 1 pound. So since alcohol is fairly high in calories with little or no nutrition, you will certainly save calories by abstaining.
That said, a major US survey has found that dieters who give up alcohol lose no more weight than dieters who include moderate amounts of alcohol in their diet.
