6 Guilt-Free Sipping Tips for Wine Lovers

Diet and Nutrition News & Advice, Featured, Mobile Slider Featured

It’s funny how you can look up the calories and sugars on the label of almost any product–except for wine! And if you drink wine daily, like me, you’d probably like to know how much calories and sugars you’re ingesting per sip, per glass, or per bottle, right?

We’re looking to the wine experts to find out, which are the best wines for guilt-free drinking….


1. Alcohol vs. Carb Content

When it comes to how wine affects your waistline forget counting carbs. According to the University of Georgia Health Center, it’s the amount of alcohol you’re swilling per glass influences the calories.

That means that carbs really don’t matter much. For instance, most alcohol has 7-calories per gram and only 4-carbohydrates (or sugars) per gram. That means a wine is much denser in calories vs. carbs so a vino with lower-alcohol always has less calories.
