A glass of wine here and a bottle of beer there, calories from those alcohol beverages really add up!
A new study from the National Center for Health Statistics finds American adults guzzle an average of 100 calories a day from alcoholic drinks. Almost 20% of men and 6% of women consume more than 300 calories a day.
The study also finds adults take in about the same number of calories from alcohol as they do in sugar-sweetened beverages.
