Sugar alcohols are supposed to be noncaloric, so it doesn't make sense that they would contribute to the calorie load on your FD pie chart. I'm pretty sure the FD slot for alcohol is for ethanol; if you back-calculate from the pie chart percentage you get for a peg of whiskey, it works out to about 7 calories per gram, which is about right for ethanol.

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
