Most of us have no idea how many calories our favourite drinks contain. In a bid to highlight the fattening effect, the Royal Society of Public Health has decided to highlight these drink-food equivalents. The survey of 2, adults was carried out for the Royal Society for Public Health. It found that three-quarters of the public did not know - or wrongly guessed - the calories in a large glass of wine. Nine out of 10 had no idea what a pint of lager contained.

This is despite the fact that adults who drink get approximately 10 per cent of their calories from alcohol. As a result, two out of three people said they want calorie labels on alcohol. Alcoholic beverages are currently not recognised as food and are therefore exempted, under existing European legislation, from normal food labelling. Around 56 calories are contained in a unit of alcohol, which is a small glass of low-strength wine.

The recommended daily calorie intake for adults is approximately 2, calories for men and 2, for women. However, as the new report points out, extra calories aren't just consumed at the time of drinking - there's the effect the day after, too, with 'carb cravings' and weaker willpower. A large ml glass of white wine is the same as four fish fingers, while an alcopop equates to a slice of pizza. A pina colada, on the other hand, packs away the same number of calories as a Big Mac.

The RPSH gives exercise comparisons, too. To burn off two pints of lager would take 30 minutes of running, while two double Baileys would need an hour of cycling to whittle away. Two thirds of people polled for the survey agreed they wanted calorie labels on alcohol. As part of the poll, the RSPH also conducted an experiment in a pub - to find out if displaying calories on drinks menus changed drinking behaviour. Over 80 per cent of the public did not know - or incorrectly estimated - the calorie content of a large glass of wine, which is around calories.

Almost 60 per cent did not know - and a further 30 per cent incorrectly estimated - the calories in a pint of lager, which is as much as calories. The European Commission says it will make a decision by December on extending nutrition labelling including calories on alcoholic products. There isn't anything low calorie about alcohol at all.
