The Alcohol Calculator – beer plus wine plus er more beer equals…

By Aisling | June 8 2009 | 35 Comments


Holy craaaaaaaaaap.

Now I don’t want to be frightening the life out of you or anything – but I think you’ll get a quare gunk when you have a go of this. We all know alcohol equals empty calories. But when we’re out for a few drinks do we realise how many calories we’re glugging down? Well I don’t think we do – I sure didn’t.

This calculator directly equates the drinks you’ve glugged with fatty foods. So you could have ended up drinking the equivalent of two slices of pizza, a hotdog AND a doughnut.  And er, the rest of the chipper menu if you’ve been on a really big night out.

We’re calling it the Evil Calculator in work. Give it a go and tell us how you get on. And be truthful!

    I don’t like this game!

  • Maura says:

    ok so I drank 1150 calories equal to:
    onion bahji x2
    jafa cakes x2
    Not counting the big ass dominos meal deal for 4 I had, shared with my friend (yes 1 friend!), before I went out.

    Sweet Sufferin’ Jaysis!
    I’ve been trying to stick to clear spirits & diet tonic on the IPD diet, so the difference between doing this on Saturday night (400 calories) vs Friday night when I succumbed to the lure of wine (1070 cals). And there’s me wondering why my weight loss is not faster :(

    But here Angel, what were you drinking missus? :)

  • Millie says:

    im not soo bad, only 715 calories of drink :oops:

  • Glitterkitty says:

    i drank 2 jaffa cakes, an onion baji, a buger and a slice of pizza worth!

    but i also ate a burger w salsa for lunch and shared a pizza delivery consisting of about 3 slices of pizza, some chicken wings and some garlic chips!!

    oh and a mint feast later on :(

    i don’t like this game either…

  • legalyblonde says:

    Oh God! I drank a hot dog,
    a burger,
    a danish pastry,
    a jaffa cake,
    an onion bahji
    and a slice of pizza!

    Add that to the two slices of pizza plus handful of wedges before going out and the peanuts, chips, dotito’s and salsa dip we had while eating…

    Thank God we can wear sweatpants where I work!!

  • Laura F says:

    I dont like this either. Of what i recall i drank 935 calories on Fri Night! Had no idea drink contained so many calories or what it equated to!!

  • cailín says:

    i do not like the game!

  • JustMe says:

    820 Cals

    10 vodkas and 5 red bulls – I thought it would of been more

  • Charli says:

    holy crap! I had 625 calories on Saturday and double that last night. Bear in mind though that this is a BBC site and that the spirit measures in the UK are smaller than ours – not sure if that is a good thing or not!

  • tina says:

    Angel – oh my god, what did you drink??

  • Becky Clark says:

    Oh jesus NOW I know why I’m fat!

  • Aphrodite says:

    The thought about the UK measures occurred to me too..
    So you can throw in another couple of hotdogs there for the size of our measures
    Oh it’s all so horrible!

  • MontyC says:

    Just Me – 10 vodkas?!


  • legalyblonde says:

    You mean i drank even more calories than what I had already thought was a horrendous amount…

    Oh God! Can Monday’s get any worse!

  • roxette says:

    i stupidly did not think wine was calorific! Ive been drinking that instead of beer recently (trying to lose a few pounds).
    Had roughly about 4 glasses of wine over the weekend and it turns out to be lots of calories :(

  • jenizzle says:

    three doubles = 500 calories – I could live with that :D

  • Shelly says:

    I dont wanna play any more :( ha ha ha!! 1075 calories or 2 onion bahji, a burger, 2 jafa cakes and a doughnut!! Jesus, although in my defense i drink bulmers light bottles and that site had me drinking pints of normal cider… I know i still had loads drinking that but in my head i didnt :)
