Calories per Gram of Alcohol

Calories per Gram of Alcohol

There are 7 calories in a gram of alcohol, which makes it a fairly high calorie food item. By comparison, protein and carbs contain less than 4 calories per gram. So, if you're following a calorie-controlled diet, it may be best to avoid alcohol-calories entirely - at least until your weight is reduced.

Alcohol May Increase Appetite and Calorie-Intake

Alcohol can increase your appetite and therefore the amount of calories you eat. A Canadian study shows that an alcoholic drink taken before a meal increased calorie intake to a greater extent than a carbohydrate-based drink.

Alcohol Calories and Health

Diet studies show that small-to-moderate alcohol intake (1-4 units* of alcohol/day) is extremely good for health. But a higher alcohol-intake not only means a higher calorie-intake, it also triggers higher risks of coronary heart disease, liver disease and some cancers.

Alcohol Units* and Calories

Beer (glass) - about 90 calories = 1 unit of alcohol.
Wine (small glass) - about 90 calories = 1 unit of alcohol.
Spirits (25ml measure) - about 50 calories = 1 unit of alcohol.
