Wine & Weight

Now that the weather is great, we tend to congregate by a body of water with a chilled bottle of wine but how do we enjoy those glasses of wine and stay on track with our diet?   Here are a few things you can do so that you can enjoy those nice evenings with your friends while sipping some wine.

  1. Know calories – Find out the calories in the wine(s) you drink. I know it’s not sexy but Moo Moo’s aren’t sexy either.  Check the internet for the calories of your favorite wines, I would go with your top 5, make note of it and when you go out ask for that wine so there are no surprises.
  2. Drink in moderation – Two (2) or more glasses of wine in one night is considered a heavy drinker for a woman.  For men, it’s three (3) or more glasses.  Women who drink about four drinks or more at one event (at least once a month) have larger waists than do moderate drinkers.  So, try not to hit your max drinking limit in one night.  Have that glass of wine, sip on it, fellowship and enjoy your friends.
  3. Choose Red –  Drink dark, dry red wine if you can.  Studies have shown that there is a compound in red wine that can block the growth of fat cells.  Red wine can increase your good cholesterol levels, improve digestion and metabolism. Go big red!

Proceed to the nearest body of water and grab that bottle of red wine, pour yourself a drink, sit back with your friends, watch the sunset and enjoy those beautiful evenings.
