Calorie Content of Beer: Beer is a good source of calories. It contains about 42 calories every 100g serving. So if you drink one bottle of beer which contains about 750 ml, your calorie intake will be about 340 calories. Normally people who drink 2-3 bottles of beer a day find that their weight has increased drastically after few days. This is due to the large amount of calories present in beer.
Vodka is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages. It is made by fermentation of wheat mash, cornmash, potato mash or rye mash.
Calorie Content of Vodka: Vodka is rich in calories. It contains about 228 calories every 100g serving. So if you are trying to lose weight, limit your intake of vodka.

It's been shown that a 1.6 ounce bar of dark chocolate a day can improve circulation and help blood vessels dilate. However, the chocolate has to contain flavonoids - compounds that are also found in red wine, blueberries, and green and black tea.

Peanut butter contains fairly high quantities of dietary fiber, amounting to about 8%, which again helps in regulating both blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Proteins are present in high amounts
Dietary fiber has also been shown to significantly reduce the risk of colo-rectal cancer and atherosclerosis (another common disease in the U.S. and Europe).
One of the most interesting and peculiar nutrients found in peanuts is Resveratrol: this is a natural antimicrobial agent, produced by the peanut plant (and in even larger quantities by red grapes) to ward off potential pathogens (bacteria, virii and fungi).

“The coffee helps to jump start my system,” said one of her clients. “It gives me energy which translates into stamina while exercising.”
drinking coffee regularly can also help prevent some forms of diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and liver and colon cancers, according to material from the Coffee Science Organization.
Fancy or elaborate coffee beverages such as blended mochas and sweetened lattes contain extra sugars that will negate the positive effects of the caffeine.
