Cake and Ale

The BBC is trying to ruin our weekends with their story this morning "Many unaware of alcohol calories"

But to coincide with the focus on weight, the Department of Health carried out research showing a regular beer drinker, who downed five pints a week or 250 over the course of a year, packed away the same number of calories as someone eating 221 doughnuts over the space of 12 months.

221 doughnuts! I feel ill.

That's only 0.6 of a doughnut a day though!

yeah, but I'd still not like to eat even half a doughnut every day for a year. One every now and then is nice but something about doughnuts just seem blah to me :-)
