While alcohol is not a nutrient (because it is considered a toxin) alcohol does supply calories/energy to the body.
Carbs & Protein both deliver 4 cal/g, Fats deliver 9cal/g, and alcohol delivers 7 cal/g
So if you are drinking alcohol, not tracking it could lead to additional hidden calories; not to mention the sugars.
I too cannot understand WHY Fitday.com does not track sugars. For crimity's sake About.com's free tracking software tracks sugar! We've been asking for FitDay to add Sugar as a category since the first version, do they not listen?!
