3 Breakfast Rules to Follow to Lose Weight

For many of us, there's nothing better at the end of the day than that nice cold lager or soothing glass of wine. But would you have that second or third glass if you knew how many calories you were knocking back? New research has revealed the vast majority of us have no idea - and are unwittingly drinking ourselves fatter in the process. Scroll down for video. 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.

Try doing different strips of plastic wrap to make the game a bit more difficult. Be sure to wrap them in different directions too. You can choose any number you want! Use Press and Seal wrap to make more challenging! If you have a large group of people playing this game, try using two large balls and start them on opposite ends of each another! Use oven mitts, gloves or mittens to make the game more challenging!

The prizes you put in the game will depend on the party theme and the ages of the people playing. For our game, we had a Christmas theme and the ages were from 10 years to 15 years old. You could get really crazy with this game depending on the theme of the party! It would be really fun to see this as a baby shower game or even a bachelor party theme too! Or you could just make this a wacky type game with really off the wall type gifts too. How about gifts ideas like a tire pressure gauge or hand warmers.

The key is to make the gifts small enough to be able to wrap in the ball. Make sure they are somewhat bendable if they are not small like the socks in the photo. We played this at our office Christmas party. We had 5 tables. In the center of each ball was a wrapped gift. It was a lot of fun! We played this game yesterday Christmas it was so much fun I used square feet of saran wrap we had 7 people I included small liquor bottles for the adults it lasted about 20 minutes everyone said they had fun.
