Dear Karen
All alcohol is fattening - 1gram supplies 29 kJ (compared to 17 kJ/gram for carbs and protein). The problem is that the drinks that are lower in energy are consumed in larger quantitities (e.g. 300 ml of beer vs 15 ml of whiskey). Stick to very dry wines (298 kJ/100ml) and alcohol-free beer (70 kJ/100ml).
