Our expert says:
The energy content of the so-called macronutrients is as follows: carbohydrates 16 kJ per gram, proteins 17 kJ per gram, fat 37 kJ per gram and alcohol contains 29 kJ per gram. Thus alcohol is second in line after fat when it comes to providing energy to the human body. Most slimming diets suggest that the person using the diet should either cut out all alcohol or restrict intake to 1-2 drinks a week to save on energy intake.
