Calories from alcohol beverages really add up.

A new study from the National Center for Health Statistics found American adults guzzle an average of 100 calories a day from alcoholic drinks.

Almost 20 percent of men and 6 percent of women consume more than 300 calories a day.

The study also found adults take in about the same number of calories from alcohol as they do in sugar-sweetened beverages.
