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!

    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? :)

    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!!
