How many calories are in YOUR favourite drink? Study reveals most of us have no idea

For many of us, there's nothing better at the end of the day than that nice cold lager or soothing glass of wine. But would you have that second or third glass if you knew how many calories you were knocking back? New research has revealed the vast majority of us have no idea - and are unwittingly drinking ourselves fatter in the process. 

The survey of 2,000 adults was carried out for the Royal Society for Public Health. It found that three-quarters of the public did not know - or wrongly guessed - the calories in a large glass of wine.

Nine out of 10 had no idea what a pint of lager contained. This is despite the fact that adults who drink get approximately 10 per cent of their calories from alcohol. As a result, two out of three people said they want calorie labels on alcohol.

Alcoholic beverages are currently not recognised as food and are therefore exempted, under existing European legislation, from normal food labelling. Around 56 calories are contained in a unit of alcohol, which is a small glass of low-strength wine. The recommended daily calorie intake for adults is approximately 2,500 calories for men and 2,000 for women.

In a bid to highlight how many calories popular drinks contain, the RSPH has released a food comparison table. It reveals that a pint of lager, which contains an average of 180 calories, is roughly equivalent to a small slice of chocolate cake. A large 250ml glass of white wine is the same as four fish fingers, while an alcopop equates to a slice of pizza. A pina colada, on the other hand, packs away the same number of calories as a Big Mac.
