Now that the lawyers are happy, how should you get drunk without getting fat? Here are the efficiencies of a variety of drinks. Feel free to email me other drinks to add to the list.
The scores given below are simply the fraction of calories that come from the alcohol. So it can be figured out by using 7 * (grams of OH) / (Total calories). The data pretty much all comes from The calorie King web site. If it comes from someone else I'll provide a cite. (Other lists: beer, various.)
If you are into mixed drinks--this page will not help you. Feel free to figure out the correct answer and email it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
