Alcohol calculator - Know your limits

Use this alcohol calculator to help you find out how much alcohol you really drink. If you are having too much a small reduction in drinking can make a big difference to your health.

It can tell you how many units you have consumed in one sitting, throughout the week or foresee what you might drink.

Did you know that the average wine drinker consumes 2,000 extra calories each month?

Along with drinking alcohol comes the temptation to eat fattening snacks, so spare a thought for all those extra calories that you are taking in. Drinking alcohol also reduces the amount of fat burnt by your body for energy. Add to that the tendency to ditch the healthy diet and eat more than you usually would, and that’s before you have had the fry up the next day!

  • While it is good to know about the amount of the calories in your drinks, don’t let it become an obsession that encourages you to skip meals as this can be disastrous. Try to eat a nutritious well balanced diet, which will improve your overall health.
