Zero Alcohol Beer and Wine Calories: Check the Label!
One of the best things about alcohol free beer, wine, and mixed drinks is that they do not contain all of the calories that is usually contained in the alcohol component of the drink. Unfortunately, some zero alcohol beverages make up for the loss with extra sugar! That is why it is important to always check the nutrition label of your no alcohol drink if you are trying to maintain a calorie deficit.
