Avoid a New Year’s Weight Gain Hangover

Avoid a New Year’s Weight Gain HangoverIf you're counting calories, keep in mind as you head out for New Year’s revelry tomorrow night: alcohol contains calories just like food does. So drink in moderation and choose wisely with this guide to alcoholic beverages and average calorie contents:

  • Beer (regular, 12 oz.): 149 calories
  • Beer (light, 12 oz.): 110 calories
  • Wine (dry, 5 oz.): 100 calories
  • Champagne (4 oz.): 84 calories
  • Wine cooler (12 oz.): 180 calories
  • Traditional Martini (2.25 oz.): 124 calories
  • Cosmopolitan (2.75 oz.): 146 calories
  • Margarita (4 oz.): 168 calories
  • Distilled spirits (80-proof, 1.5 oz.): 98 calories

It's also important to keep in mind that mixers can add calories, too.

For more information about alcohol in moderation, consult a registered dietitian nutritionist in your area and review What Is Considered One Serving of Alcohol? in our Nutrition Q&A section.
