Net Carbs in Alcoholic Drinks
This is a list of common drinks you will run into. This is an approximation, since different brands my vary some. Mixed drinks can be very different in carbs depending on what recipe is used.
So, as usual, this is for you to have a general idea. These numbers are approximations.
Also, I’m not a drinker at all, so I can’t help with any personal knowledge. But this should be close enough to keep you out of carb trouble.
The carb content is figured as per 100 grams, or about 3 ½” ounces. Net carbs are total carbs minus fiber. Fiber is counted as carbs, but doesn’t really absorb in the body.
Note: If you are ever stuck at a certain weight and you can’t lose anymore, try counting your carbs as total carbs and not net carbs. This will lower your carb count even more and can often break a weight loss stall.
