The world’s most fattening drinks

Mulled wine – 400 calories (plus lots of carbs)

Mulled wine

A Christmas favourite for many, mulled wine can add a significant amount to the seasonal calorie count. Mulled wine is a combination of wine, or Port, which is gently heated with sugar and additional spices including cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon as well as fruit juice, vanilla and star anise.

Many people like to add an extra measure of alcohol such as sloe gin or Grand Marnier. The wine, sugar and other spirit all combine to give mulled wine up to 400 calories per glass.

    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.

    What about ciders. I switched from JOHN Smith to Alaska ciders but they are more calories. Would I be better switching to vodka and tonic. It’s true if you eat and drink and don’t burn it off then you gain weight.
