Start complaining now about the weight you may gain over the holidays. You plan to eat, drink, sit down inside where it’s warm so you can eat and drink more. Then on January 1st, you’ll start frowning when you look in the mirror and once again, those annual New Years resolutions come up. Health clubs start offering deals that are not really deals because they expect to hear from people after January 1st. So save all of that stress and either join the gym now or start complaining now.
But Weight Watchers claims to have solved your problem with a diet wine called Cense.
Does the diet wine tend to make you overeat, as regular wine may do? If so, you have to wonder if it makes sense to drink Cense or any wine while dieting, if you don’t handle it in moderation.
Health experts say an occasional glass of wine or beer shouldn’t disrupt a diet, but if you want to drink with the least amount of calories, wine is it…diet or not. The Huffington Post updated a 2013 article about which alcohol has the least amount of calories , therefore ok to consume while dieting. The conclusions:
Wine: Consistently Low Calorie
Average calories: 25 per ounce; 125 per serving
According to Next Avenue “Sipping on a glass of merlot or sauvignon blanc is not going to make or break your diet. Most wines typically range from 25 to 35 calories per ounce. “Dry” wines that have little or no sugar remaining after the fermentation process land on the lower end, while “sweet” varieties like Rieslings, Sauternes, and white zinfandels are on the higher end, for the opposite reason. A typical 5-ounce pour should net you a moderate 125 calories, not much more than one of those 100-calorie snack packs.”
If you love a glass of wine, pros and cons are there. It might be worth trying and then again, one glass of regular wine at 125 calories isn’t going to make you blow up.
Drink responsibly, drive safely or take on a designated driver. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!©
