Should You Drink Low-Calorie Wines?

When you are changing your diet to lose weight, it can be hard to give up favorite libations no matter how many empty calories they contain. Wine is a beloved alcoholic beverage for many, but what about these new low-calorie wines? As appealing as they may sound, do they actually help you lose weight? Let’s find out to determine if they fit with your Phentermine 37.5mg fast weight loss plan. 

Up To 30% Fewer Calories

Reduced-calorie wines have anywhere from 15% to 30% fewer calories than their regular counterparts. If a five-ounce “diet wine” contains 90 calories, for example, the regular five-ounce version contains 120. So if you drink only one or two glasses of wine per day, you are saving yourself 20 to 25 calories per glass. 

If you're drinking two glasses of low-cal wine a day versus 'regular' wine, you've eliminated 60 calories out of an average 2,000-calorie diet. That's 3% of your total calorie intake. To me, that doesn't seem like enough of a calorie reduction to be concerned about, but I'm not a triathlete," Dwayne Bershaw, who teaches winemaking classes in the Department of Food Science at Cornell University, told CNN. 

No Sugar”

Sugar is a well-known weight loss and overall health enemy, and some reduced-calorie wines claim to feature no sugar at all. 

"There are many high-quality whites, and most reds, which contain very little residual sugar,” says Bershaw. “So, from this perspective, these wines are just like many others on the market."

Reducing Your Overall Alcohol Intake

The best way to reduce your empty calorie intake from wine? Drink less of it. 

"Unless we are talking about overtly sweet wines, alcohol content is by far the largest driver of calories," Bershaw notes. 

Reduced-calorie winemakers echo Bershaw’s comments. 

"Just because we can make lower-alcohol wine that's also lower in calories doesn't mean that people should drink more of it," said Ginger Hultin, a registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
