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.
The click “Foods”.
The click the + to add a custom food.
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.
Sorry to burst your alcoholic bubble, flexible dieters.
