Calories in Wine

A Must-Read For Wine-Lovers Trying to Lose Weight

Why worry about the calories in wine because heck, it's good for me, right? "Wine is good for me!" Yes, it's true that there are many health benefits associated with wine. Plus as far as happy hour goes, wine is one of the most waist-friendly drinks you can choose, unlike other happy hour bevvies, which can contain a ridiculous amount of calories. Per ounce, wine is lower in calories and also free of cholesterol, sodium, and fat. But keep in mind the sweeter you go (I'm talking about you, dessert wine), the higher the calorie content. Check out the chart below before ordering your next glass.
