So can I save up my Monday to Thursday drinks for the weekend? a question im asked regularly ,government guidelines say NO! Binge drinking isn’t advisable for lots of reasons, but what they do like is us having a three-day break from alcohol each week – good to know. WHAT ARE UNITS OF ALCOHOL?
+ 1 pint of lager or cider (568ml) at 5% ABV is 2.8 units and 215 calories
+ 1 large glass of wine (250ml) at 12% ABV is 3 units and 180 calories
+ 1 shot of spirit/liqueur on ice (25ml) at 40% ABV is 1 unit and 59 calories
+ 1 gin and tonic (1 x 25ml shot and 1 x 250ml tonic) at 40% is 1 unit and 114 calories So if calories and watching your weight is an issue, then bigging up water as your chosen drink is your biggest weapon. What will you be drinking this weekend ?Why and Where and How much
