According to data collected by data analysts Euromonitor International, people in the UK, among other countries, get more calories from alcohol than they do sugary drinks.
According to the information, of the 24 countries tracked, all but one have higher daily calorie intake from alcoholic drinks than sugary beverages.
Lemonade and cola are often the target when tackling health issues but the research suggests we should also be limiting our alcohol calorie intake which is often overlooked.
Surprisingly South Korea had the highest calorie intake from alcohol, with almost 168 calories a person daily being consumed and only 44 calories coming from sugary drinks.
Only Taiwan, of all the countries examined, got more calories from sugary drinks than alcohol, according to the study.
