How many calories are really in a cup of tea or coffee? Is a glass of wine now and then okay if you’re on a diet, or can it tip your expected calorie intake for the day way off the scales?

Here’s a list of some popular beverages and the amount of calories they contain:

1 cup of tea with no milk and no sugar: Less than 3 calories
1 cup of tea made with semi-skimmed milk and no sugar: 14 calories
1 cup of tea with semi-skimmed milk and sugar: 50 calories
1 cup of coffee with semi-skimmed milk: 14 calories
1 coffee brewed from grounds and made with just water: 2 calories
1 coffee brewed from instant coffee and made with just water: 2 calories
1 small espresso (2 oz.): 1 calorie
1 small glass of red wine (120 ml): 80 calories
1 small glass of medium white wine (120 ml): 87 calories
1 250ml can of Red Bull: 113 calories
1 average pint of lager: 165 calories
1 can of Diet Coke: 1 calorie
Water (any amount): 0 calories

All of the above obviously vary according to quantity and things like the AMOUNT of milk etc you add to your drink. If you need to find out the calories in any other beverage, most can be found on the Internet on sites like Weight Loss Resource or Calorie Count – otherwise, drop me a comment with your query and I’ll find out for you!
