I find that when I avoid wine, I lose weight. It's not rocket science. After a couple glasses of wine, I eat unhealthy foods or too much food. I usually have wine on weekends, but then I find that all my week long efforts and weight loss are squashed by my weekend antics. Not worth it.

I bought a bartender's "ounce" spout for my wine (it pours a perfect ounce). I cap our open wine bottle and never have more than 3 ounces in one night. This keeps alcoholic calories down and limits my wine consumption to a healthy amount.
I am a testament that cutting alcohol does accelerate your weight loss. For years I would hit a weight loss plateau and get discouraged. I finally realized that drinking glasses of wine on the weekends was the culprit. This year I cut out all drinking and the results are amazing. No more plateaus9
