Choose Wisely to Stay On Track


  • This article has been very informative, thanks. I too get the munchies when I have a drink and I thought that there was something wrong with me, but come to find out I'm not the only one. That is good to know. - 9/1/2008 7:55:13 AM

    I'm trying hard not to drink, bc I get tend to get the "munchies" ! lol
    When I do drink, it's always Rum and DIET Coke, so at least I'm not hurting myself too bad there. - 7/24/2008 2:52:24 PM
  • The problem is... 5oz is so small and wine is fine! - 7/7/2008 9:06:08 PM
  • 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! - 6/25/2008 4:36:01 PM

  • 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'! - 4/24/2008 3:48:55 PM
