Cutting alcohol out of your diet will help any calorie counting diet. Its often one of the easiest things to do without.
So now you know how many calories are in a pint of beer you can go ahead and see how many you are adding into your diet.
If you must continue to drink even though you have read the above alcohol calorie count, you could stick to spirits as these are lower in calories.
Another problem with alcohol intake is that you are more likely to sway away from your usual diet when you drink.
