We're supposed to be keeping an eye on how much we drink, but how many of us really know what a unit of alcohol is?
With so many different drinks and glass sizes, from shots to pints (not to mention bottles) it's easy to get confused about how many units are in your drink. Try the alcohol calculator to quickly calculate units in your favourite drink and download a drinks diary to track your drinking over a week.
Alcoholic drinks contain many calories per unit of alcohol and they don’t have any nutritional or food value in terms of what the body needs for sustenance. Cutting down on drinking will help you lose weight.
We know that cutting down on alcohol can be very difficult, so to give yourself the best chance of succeeding, you will need to enlist the help and support from people you know. Don't forget that cutting down on alcohol can improve your health, wealth and social wellbeing.
Use the alcohol tracker to work out if you are keeping within the recommended limits.
