Dating Diet Tip: Have a Glass of Wine, Not a Bottle

When out on a date, sharing a bottle of wine can be quite romantic. But drinking half a bottle means you'll end up drinking over two glasses of wine. Although red wine does have many health benefits, remember that it's recommended that women only have one alcoholic beverage a day. Aside from overdoing it on the alcohol front, an extra glass of wine will tack on 120 calories to your meal. Not only that, but alcohol can lessen your resolve to eat healthy. So order one glass for the evening, and sip on water when you're done. It'll benefit your waistline, your health, and your wallet.

i guess i can understand where you're coming from on this one - with saying that you should just go by the glass rather than a bottle, but from the economical side, but it's hard sometimes. i guess having 2 glasses once every now and then isn't so bad - and it's not like most people go on these really romantic dates all the time so it's not like you're over doing things.

I just think you can be healthy and still have more than a glass of wine with your dinner.

What's with the spammy carenet posts?

I think this is a valid post. It is, after all, a health and fitness forum where the posts are ones that are going to try and benefit your health. Fit is just trying to help out by saying it's easy to go overboard with food and other behaviors when your inhibitions are lowered with alcohol. Want to splurge in life? Great. Everyone does it one way or another. But don't come to a health and fitness site and be surprised that the moderator(s) is posting about drinking too much not being the best for your health or awareness.

I'm not much of a wine drinker, but generally when I'm eating out, I limit myself to one alcoholic drink or I'll just have prices are way too high for me.

Oh geez. Who has just one glass of wine these days anyway? I understand everything in moderation but as someone eats well and excercises on a daily basis, I'm not going to refrain from splitting a bottle of wine with someone. I'm tired of all these alcohol-based posts..."booze is good for you" "no wait, booze is bad for you" etc. I think if you are doing everything else right in your life, you're allowed to live a little. Lighten up, Fit, you're sounding like my old pastor.
