The site also offers helpful nutritional information.  Unfortunately there are very few alcoholic beverages that add any helpful nutrients to your diet.  You can benefit however by knowing exactly how many calories and carbohydrates you are consuming with each drink.  Alcohol is converted to energy by the body much more easily than food.  Learning how to moderate your alcohol and corresponding caloric intake can greatly aid in achieving your weight goals.
