Default A Sobering Thought...

Apologies in advance to all those about to go on holiday! Just enjoy it!

I was having a browse tonight on AOL and stumbled across this sobering fact.

Apparently, the new size glass that is now being used widely in pubs - 250ml - has approximately 170 calories per glass (a third of a bottle of wine). And the more alcoholic the wine, the more calories it will contain.

Two large glasses of wine a night, every night, will add up to a staggering 124,100 extra calories a year!:eek

Another reason for me to avoid the vino during the week!

Approximate calories for other drinks include:

125ml glass of white wine - 85
Gin and Tonic - 145
Pint of Lager - 190

Perhaps this will start another "own-up" thread??
