How many kilojoules in alcoholic drinks?
« on: January 03, 2023, 12:10:20 am »
The kilojoules/calories in alcohol
Alcohol is high in kilojoules that, when consumed in excess, can contribute to unwanted weight gain. Thereís also no nutritional benefit from drinking alcohol, which is why itís often referred to as Ďempty caloriesí.

One standard drink contains 10g of alcohol, which equates to 290kJ (69cal). Given that the average restaurant serve of wine contains 1.4 standard drinks, or a 25ml schooner of full-strength beer contains 1.6 standard drinks, itís easy to see how the kilojoules can quickly add up.

Eat, drink and be merry!
Drinking alcohol on an empty stomach means youíll feel the effects very quickly ó then hello hangover! So, before you start drinking, eat a nutritious meal or snack. By eating beforehand, youíll also be less likely to overdo into salty party foods that make you thirsty and, in turn, drink more.

Lighter fare
Luckily, itís easy to rein things in. If your go-to quencher is beer, a low-alcohol variety can save kilojoules. If wine is more your thing, you could try a spritzer made up of 50 per cent wine and 50 per cent soda water, to lighten things up.

Alternating alcoholic drinks with non-alcoholic drinks is another wise way to cut down total alcohol intake. Kombucha, mineral water with a squeeze of lime juice, or even a sugar-free soft drink every now and then, can provide a refreshing flavour hit, so that you donít end up feeling like youíre missing out.
