Some Drinks Make You Fatter Than Others
Not all alcoholic drinks are created equal in the fat-making stakes. Some drinks have additional fat producing qualities because of the carbohydrates in them. For example, red wine and dry white wine have few carbohydrates because the sugar has been turned into alcohol. On the other hand, sweet wine has more, and fortified wines like port and sherry have more still. Of course, beer and lager are very high in carbohydrates, and cider is not far behind. Drinkers of whisky and spirits will be pleased to know there are virtually no carbohydrates present. All this makes sense, because the sweeter the drink the more sugar would be present and sugar is a carbohydrate.
