A British Study finds most people don"t know the effect alcohol can have on their waistlines.
Out of the two thousand people polled, half are unaware a glass of wine has the same caloric content as a piece of cake.
The United Kingdom Department of Health did the study in hopes it will help curb people's drinking.
Researchers say heaving drinking is also associated with binge eating, another way to pack on the pounds.
They claim having five drinks a week over the course of a year has the same number of calories as eating 221 donuts in 12 months.
