The world’s most fattening drinks

4th March, 2013 by Andy Young

From a Long Island iced tea to a white Russian we reveal which drinks have the highest number of calories.

A pint of beerA recent study claimed that the beer belly is a myth adding “there is no scientific evidence to support the assertion that beer causes weight gain”.

The UK’s public health minister, Anna Soubry, recently revealed that the government is considering displaying the amount of calories contained in bottles of beer, wine and spirits. Californian wine giant Gallo has chosen to reveal the number of calories on its new lower alcohol wines and a number of other new low and lower alcohol wine launches, such as Skinnygirl wine from US reality TV star Bethenny Frankel, have flagged up their low calorie credentials in their marketing material.

While carbohydrates are present in beer, which are bad according to the Adkins diet, there is no fat or cholesterol in the product. So which drinks should you avoid if you are counting the calories?

Tomorrow we will reveal which drinks have the lowest number of calories.

    If you suffer from high blood sugar, it is definitely the low CARB rather than low calorie ones you should go for to avoid getting fat! Fruit juice are high in fructose, one of the sweetest types of sugar. Red wine (but avoid the rather sweet from northern Italy etc.), DRY white wine and bubbly, whisky, vodka, brandy.

    If you don’t have a blood sugar issue, I guess you could drink pretty much everything and keep counting your calories if you like. Find out about your metabolism. Then tune your eating and drinking habits to that. Simple. :)

    “there is no fat or cholesterol in the product”
    And we should care because….
    There is zero scientific proof that natural fats or dietary cholesterol are unhealthy. Look it up.
