Q. In which sports do you burn the most calories?

I heard that in a spinning session you can burn up to 1000 calories and that Bikram yoga is also very good for burning lots of calories. Do you know of other sports?
ARunning and cycling are considered high-expenditure sports. Generally, the higher you get your pulse during the exercise the higher your calorie expenditure is. However, the burning fat is optimal at a certain pulse, usually not the highest you can get yourself to.

Q. Is it true that alcohol has lots of calories?

if so, then how can it be that people who are alcoholics are not all very fat?
A1Alcohol carries about 7 Kcal per gram. 1 gram of fat gives 9 kcal & 1 gram of carbohydrate gives 4 kcal. but vast amount of alcohol can suppress the need for food, so they can pass out every afternoon and forget eating. obesity is a better situation. trust me.
A2Alcohol does have lots of calories but alcoholists drink more than they eat-that's why they're not fat. just so you know- beer is the most fattening, wine is better in this matter- white better than red...
