Like many other drinks, alcoholic beverages have calories that can build up quickly. Going out for a couple of drinks can add 500 calories or more to your daily intake. Most alcoholic beverages are quite low in nutrients. You should monitor how much alcohol you consume if you want to lose weight or keep it off. Cocktails mixed with soda, juice, cream, or ice cream can have especially high-calorie counts.

If you are trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight, you will want to watch how much you drink.
