i usually stick with red wine, captain & diet coke, or jack & diet coke. i have a big weakness for jagerbombs, so i try to do the least damage possible by using sugar-free redull! if it wasnt for 4 years of cheap keg beer in college, i probably wouldnt even be on this site! :(
I am confused. This article says that red wine is 100 calories for 5 ounces, but most resources I checked say it is 120 calories for 5 ounces (Merlot & Pinot Noir). This includes what is posted on the spark nutrition tracker.
Ok, here's my problem...the nutrition tracker does not differentiate between the types of wine or liquor. Granted the calories differences are minimal but when you're counting every one - especially during the holidays - I like to think the info I get in the tracker is accurate!

This makes me think twice when I enjoy my vodka drinks during the weekend. I will be trying to find healthier alternatives.
ALCHOHOL SUPPRESSES FAT OXIDATION ,BUT THE BIGGEST FACTOR IS DEFINATELY THE CALORIES AND WITH ANY BOOZE HOUND THEY'RE ALWAYS COUNTING UP, LIKE NASA'S" COUNTDOWN"1 BEER 2 BEERS 3 BEERS" tAKE OFF"260 CALORIES (AND STILL)... COUNTING!(BECAUSE NOW YOU CAN REALLY SLAM THEM)
hello fellow LIFE enthusiasts!!! Now... though wine may be lower in calories then beer, beer contains chronium(or at least most beers do)and chromium has most been known to speed up the rate of the performance from your metabolism but ON THE OTHER HAND all alchohol speeds up cortisol levels, which leads to fat cell harbouring...YUCK! I'M NOT SURE WHICH WOULD OUTWAY THE OTHER AS IT IS CIRCUMSTANTIAL! let's hope overall chromium is the champion!!!!
