Diet-Friendly Alcohol Choices

Choose Wisely to Stay On Track


    I drink a glass of red wine occasionally and it's good to see the calories aren't bad and supposedly a moderate amount is good for your heart, too. Thanks for this informative article. - 3/17/2008 10:02:47 AM
  • This was a very helpful article, I shared it with all my friends. Even with wine, you can cut it with a flavored seltzer water to make a lower calorie spritzer - perfect for a summer afternoon on the boat when wine might be a bit heavy. Also, i agree that you should always pick quality over quantity. Drink what you like the best, in moderation. You'll be more satisfied.

    Thanks. - 3/17/2008 9:42:07 AM
  • This is going to come in handy for my upcoming cruise. - 3/17/2008 9:16:48 AM
  • the satisfaction factor counts for a lot though - One pint of Guinness is far more satisfying than 4 pints of some watered down light beer... (I make it a rule to never drink anything that's the same color coming in as it is going out) drink what you enjoy... - 3/17/2008 9:16:03 AM
  • That is correct..tonic water is very high in carbs, too. - 3/4/2008 3:16:41 PM
  • I was under the misconception that beer was a better alternative to wine because wine had a higher calorie content, I fact I was just discussing that with friends. I'm so glad I read this article so I can go back to wine which I definitely prefer when I do have a drink. Much nicer with dinner on occasion!! I just need to pay attention to the size of the glass. - 2/2/2008 7:58:01 AM
  • Tonic water is not calorie-free! Ask for diet!! - 1/22/2008 9:23:16 PM
  • I like to go out and have a few drinks with my girlfriends, I will stick to a few glasses of wine instead of a few beers. I dont want to drink my calories.

    Sometimes I like an occasional beer, but have avoided it because caloric content, red wine is my favourite, glad to know it's best and happy to know on a hot day 1 beer won't make me explode - 1/3/2008 2:18:04 PM
    This was a great article. I love wine and now I know I will be drinking that in moderation on New Years. Everyone please have a safe New Year. - 12/30/2007 10:15:19 PM
  • I was so happy to see that wine was the best friendly when it comes to dieting.. I'm a wine drinker ( in moderation) so it's good to know that I don't have to give up "all" the good stuff! =) - 12/29/2007 12:50:42 PM
  • I'm so glad to know about wine being my best choice, because it's my favorite anyway. - 12/18/2007 10:57:50 AM
