Be mindful that you don't "drink" your kilojoules

Take the following into consideration the next time you opt for an alcoholic beverage, as one gram of alcohol is equal to 29 kilojoules.

Furthermore, you normally drink alcohol in addition to food

Alcohol in moderation (two drinks) stimulates the appetite. Salty snacks served at a bar make you thirsty, and alcohol acts as a diuretic. Two reasons why one drink makes you drink more.

A hangover is a sign of dehydration.

  • Alc 12.5% (label on a bottle of wine) means that the wine contains 12.5g alcohol/100ml, but remember, a small glass of wine = 180 ml.

  • 4.7% alc/vol (label on a bottle of beer) means that the beer contains 4.7g alcohol/100ml, but remember, a bottle of beer = 330ml

Mixers like Coke, lemonade and fruit juice can add a substantial number of kilojoules (energy) to an alcoholic beverage. Water/soda water and/or lots of ice are the best ways to make an alcoholic drink “last longer” and also minimise dehydration.
