    Agree 100%. I think this will enlighten a lot of the laymen people that do not know the calories contained in alcohol.

    I think the vast majority will still drink the way they always have; especially those that have fast metabolisms and don't get a beer gut all that quickly (and everyone on college campuses).

    It's not required by the FDA for alcoholic drinks to have a label(i.e. not seen as a food group). There are some thoughts that the new labeling process on products would increase prices to offset the labor and new marketing process in order to do so. It will be negligible if any IMO. They are looking to offer beer and wine companies the option of providing a full label as seen on the back of any food product(requiring a new product design i.e cost) or a new revised side bar label, which would offset huge expenses from a standard label.

    you can def google it if your that concerned. Regardless, just stick to straight shots of the highest proof you can handle if your looking for efficiency and minimal sugar intake, lol

    Yes, but the interesting thing about the labeling is the fact that all calories will be shown i.e. Alcoholic calories as well as standard micronutrient calories. Few people know that 1gr of alcohol contains 7 calories.

    Protein - 4kcal/gr
    Carb - 4kcal/gr
    Fat - 9kcal/gr
    Alcohol - 7kcal/gr

    It will surprise a lot of people who drink "light beer and light wine" because it's low in carbs and such.

    I actually didnt know that, interesting. I guess in the end, if your drinking enough to where the caloric intake actually matters, and you are basing the amount you drink on such, you're drinking to get smashed. And by then, calories dont exist, and big macs are now considered a viable food source, haha
