What are liquid calories, and where are they found?

Medically Reviewed by Checkmark Medically Reviewed By: Sheela Krishnaswamy

Liquid calories are the calories that are found in the food items that we drink. They can be found in juice, alcohol, carbonated beverages, energy drinks, sweetened water, sports drinks, coffee or tea.

Calories from these beverages do not provide the same fullness as solid foods do. People often don’t pay much attention to them. But, if one is trying to lose weight, it is important to account for liquid calories as well. These extra calories come from a routine glass of juice or a favorite coffee consumed in the day. One must check labels and verify what a serving size for this liquid actually is. 

Also, consider eating raw fruit instead of drinking the juice as your hunger will be satisfied, and you’ll also get fiber and other nutrients with fewer calories as compared to the juice.
