HEy Guys One of the obvious side effects of alcohol is that it adds calories to your diet. While many of us have a handle on the calories we eat, we often don't know how many calories are in our drinks.

While alcohol doesn't contain fat, it does contain 7 calories per gram. That's more than protein and carbs, both of which contain 4 calories per gram. To get an idea of what you're drinking, check out this brief list of common cocktails. Does your favorite drink have more calories than you thought?

1 can (12 oz) Beer - 135-145 calories
1 can (12 oz) Light Beer - 101 calories
1 glass (3.5 oz) Red or White Wine - 70-75 calories
1 shot (1.5 oz) Gin, rum, vodka or whiskey - 97 calories
1 glass (6 oz) Cosmopolitan - 143 calories
1 glass (4.5 oz) Pina colada - 262 calories
1 glass (2.2 oz) Martini - 135 calories
A couple of beers can easily add more than 300 calories to your diet, the equivalent of 30 minutes of jogging for a 150-lb person. Having a few drinks after a workout may end up undoing all that hard work.
