How to Calculate the Macros of Alcohol & Add to MyFitnessPal

Print Friendly

Unfortunately, alcohol is not empty calories. We must track the macros. To calculate macros take total calories and divide by 4 for carbs or 9 for fat, preferably use as carbs. So if one shot or beer is 120 calories we will divide 120/4 = 30g carbs.

 

To add the alcohol to MyFitnessPal go to “My Recipes & Foods” tab.

Input the information for your item.

Then input the amount of calories and carbs or fat. In this case, I used carbs so 110/4=27.5. You can also do some carbs, some fat.
