The average wine drinker consumes more than 2,000 calories a month from alcohol alone, government research suggests.

That is the equivalent of 38 roast beef dinners or almost 184 bags of crisps a year, according to the Department of Health.

More than four out of 10 (42%) women surveyed for the Government’s Know Your Limits campaign said they had no idea a glass of white wine had the same calories as a bag of crisps – and when it came to men, four out of 10 (40%) were unaware that a pint of lager had as many calories as a sausage roll.
