    Actually, DOGTURTLEWMN, neither of those things are true (wine does not help you lose weight or build muscle). Some studies have shown a correlation between people who have 1-2 drinks a day and maintaining a healthier weight, but there's nothing about the properties of wine that CAUSE that to happen. There tends to be confounding variables like: most people who drink 1-2 servings/day have healthier habits in general. In terms of building muscle, physiologically that it doesn't make sense that any properties of wine would enhance that process.

    I heard recently that red wine helps you lose weight and build muscle. When I was a Weight Watcher, I had a small glass of red wine every night & lost lots of weight. I am doing it again, and I am losing when I thought I stopped!
  • All hail wine. I think I'll stick to that. ;)
  • It is so nice to know I can still have my glass of wine with my hot bath for my weekly treat. you guys make it so easy to fit dieting in with my life.
  • woohoo, I am grabbing the bottle opener! wine for me!
  • It is helpful - especially if you're doing weight watchers. I know exactly how many points are in what I like to drink so I can plan those points in for those "special times'!
  • Guinness!! (Stout not Draught)

    1 pint Guinness Stout:

    170 cals
    0 fat
    5.7 g carbs

  • Wahooo that means everytime I go drinking i drink 1600 Calories of tequila a night...geeze that my limit for the day :s

    So I've always been right... if you want a cheap buzz, skip everything and go right for the hard stuff, haha.
  • awesome article. Enjoy my drinks but will stick with Light beer from now on.
  • This had to go in my favs. I enjoy a drink every now and then and just knowing the calorie intake is very helpful. I've always cut down extremely for breakfast and lunch if I knew I could possibly have a drink that night -- now I can follow calories a lot closer, Thanks!
  • This article is great! I think that it's club soda and not tonic water that is the calorie free option though.

    PEGSUM - I couldn't agree more. Whenever I drink I start to get the munchies, so regardless of the calories in the drink, I end up eating more. But for special occasions I guess a little pigging out is okay.
  • I think it is very important to remember that alcohol lessens your inhibitions and inhibitions are exactly what you need when you are trying to watch what you eat.

    I have a drink and suddenly that little voice in my head tells me that a few french fries, chicken wings, etc. are really not going to matter in the long run. Go ahead, eat...
