Best Alcohol to Calorie Ratio

There has never been a research that has shown alcoholic beverages to have any nutrient value. Instead, they are always high in calories which only makes those drinking it gain more calories in the body.

Any alcoholic beverage contains more calories than proteins or carbohydrates per ounce. And when alcoholic beverages are consumed alongside high-calorie foods, one ends up eating more calories than they would have if they had chosen to eat the food accompanied by a non-alcoholic beverage.

However, if you are someone who drinks alcoholic beverages, it is important to choose your drinks wisely as some have the best alcohol to calorie ratio than others.

When it comes to alcoholic drinks, wine and beer have the lowest number of calories compared to other drinks. Light beers, red and white wine tend to have less calories compared to regular beers and dessert wines. The latter has twice the number of calories found in light beers as well as in both red and white wine.

On the other hand, hard liquor has more calories when compared to beer or wine. For each ounce of fluid of 80-proof distilled spirit found in vodka, rum, whiskey, and gin, has 64 calories which bring the typical serving close to 96 calories. The reason hard liquors tend to have more calories is due to the fact that they have more sugar.

If you thought hard liquors end the list of the alcoholic beverages with a high calorie, that’s not the case. Mixed drinks have a higher calorie number than any other alcoholic drink. Alcoholic beverages should be consumed moderately and by persons above the legal drinking age.

Roofing decisions for homeowners


Roofing styles have changed over the years leaving home owners with a large variety to choose from. Home owners have to decide on the roofing design and materials to use. They also have to find the right roofing experts to install new roofs and repair them when they are damaged.

New styles such as eco-shake, solar shingles, and concrete tile roofing are becoming popular. Green roofs are also being installed owing to benefits such as extended life, waterproofing, noise insulation and lower energy consumption due to insulation. Challenging, flamboyant works of great architects have been designed as well, while time tested roofing designs are still in existence. Popular designs among homeowners include flat roofs which are the simplest type but require good waterproofing.

The more adventurous homeowners often go for the shade roof despite the odd shape created in rooms. Other styles include bonnet, gable, pyramid, gambrel, curved, and domed roofs. There’s also a variety of roofing materials to choose from including clay tiles, rubber, slate wood, metal, asphalt and composite roofs.

roofing-decisions-homeownersA homeowner’s choice of roofing style and material depends on the desired appearance of the house, their budget, and whether they want attic space among other factors. Once a homeowner has settled on the design and roofing material, they have to find the right person for the installation and/or repair job since different roofers are experts in installing and repairing different roofing styles.
Regardless of whether you have a simple flat metal roof or something inspired by some swashbuckling adventures, it is important to seek repair services from the right people when damages occur. It is even more important if you have a complex roof design but don’t have the roof repair expertise to undertake DIY roofing project. Those who have ever needed a roofer in brooklyn to provide roofing services especially in emergencies know the importance of having a trusted roofer to call. Here are a number of things to remember when looking for the right person for your roofing needs.


Word of mouth is a powerful way of finding services you need. If you need a roofer especially if it is an emergency and you don’t have time to vet several candidates, asking your friends, neighbors and family is a quick way to find one. Other sources of references could include the yellow pages and trade union sites/offices.


Although it is important that the roof repair or replacement job fit within your budget, it important to get the best quality of service. Therefore, never let cost be your only deciding factor because failing to consider other factors can leave you vulnerable to roofers who may provide cheap service but leave you with regret.

Due diligence

Once you’ve found a few candidates, you need to vet each one. Try to gauge their roofing expertise and find out if they have repaired or replaced your type of roof before. Check the references provided. You should also conduct research to ascertain their liability insurance and licensure status, get an address and identification details. It is also important to sign a detailed contract with the roofer; covering the cost of the service, mode and time of payment, work schedule, responsibilities of each party including site cleanup, and other contract terms. You should also seek clarification whenever you have questions. This will not only keep you informed in the process; it will also help you detect undesirable qualities such as impatience and evasiveness.
