CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- Every calorie counts towards your daily intake, so don't forget about the liquid ones!
And on top of that a new study suggests when we drink, we just don't eat right.
Rob Debreczeni was the poster child for the freshman 15 when he was in school.
"I started probably at 185, 180, somewhere in that range," said Rob.
But cafeteria food was not the culprit for the weight gain.
"Sitting down and having five or six beers I probably gained an easy 15 pounds," said Rob
He admitted to being a binge drinker in college.
"Well, when I was in a fraternity we had quite a few parties," said Rob.
"Binge drinking is identified more when you have one setting of drinking at least five drinks or more and that can be sporadic, it can be a few times a year, or hopefully, it's not weekly or a regular basis," said Registered Dietitian Michelle Ray with Novant Health.
