Dear oenophiles, raise your wine glass to this awesome revelation. It’s hard to cut down on alcohol especially wine when you’re trying to shed those extra kilos. As long as you drink in moderation which is 5 ounces a day, it should be of no harm at all. Plus, here we’ll talk about which are the right kind of wines to choose from which won’t hamper your diet as you indulge. So read on and take your pick.
The Connoisseurs Of Red Wine
If you love indulging in the reds, we recommend going for merlots, pinot noir and even the gorgeous looking rosés. Tanya Zuckerbrot, R.D., creator of the F-Factor Diet tells Women’s Health that these contain only one gram of sugar, three grams of carborhydrates and merely 88 calories a glass.
Avoid reaching out for sherries and marsala as they are high in carbs, sugar and calories.
The Lovers Of White Wines
While you’ll need to hold back from indulging in dessert wines like riesling or moscato, there are whites that you can have without guilt. Try picking from white zinfandels, chardonnays and sauvignon blancs. Zuckerbrot says that all these are under 85 calories a glass, 2.6 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of sugar.
“Just treat it like any other indulgence by adding up your calories for the day or week to determine how much wiggle room you have and where wine can fit in.” says Zuckerbrot. So wine lovers, go ahead, swirl, smell and sip away.
