A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that alcohol has empty calories much like soda , or even more. The study showed that the average man got 150 calories per day from booze and the average woman, 50 which is equivalent to about half glass of wine. Researchers said that a 12-ounce can of Coke has 140 calories. The study found that nearly 6 percent of calories that adults get is from soda and sweetened drinks and nearly 5 percent from booze.
