Ask The Wine Ladies… How do we lose the extra 5 lbs and still enjoy an occasional glass of wine? Keto//OS


I’d like to wish you a Happy New Year. Thank you for spreading the joy of wine throughout the year! Once again as we head into 2017 I have a question for you.  How do we lose the extra five pounds we have been gifted and still enjoy an occasional glass of wine?  Which wines are the least caloric?

Happy New Year to you as well and we must confess, we too have been similarly gifted!
Here’s the good news, if it is only an occasional glass of wine, and time is not of the essence, the additional 100-125 calories/ 5 ounce glass shouldn’t impede your progress too badly. In fact, there are many diets out there that actually allow for an occasional glass or two such as Weight Watchers and L.A. Weight Loss.  Even the popular ketogenic diet has a place for vino says Dr. Dominic D’Agostino of Keto//OS. In fact there is one company, Dry Farm Wines, deemed “ketogenic friendly”  that we are looking at bringing in, so keep an eye out for that.

We would order cialis from uk like to offer a word of caution though, if you are anything like us, we tend to bring out the assortment of cheeses, dried fruit and nuts to accompany our wine.  This behavior is definitely better reserved for post diet times.

In fact, studies show that total consumption of calories tends to go up when an aperitif or two precedes or accompanies the meal.

Finally we are often asked if the driest wines are the least caloric. Actually the ideal choice is to select wines that are both dry and lower in alcohol. Percentage alcohol is definitely a determining factor when it comes to caloric content. Opt for wines that come from cooler climates such as Germany, Austria, New Zealand and Ontario to name a few.  Cooler climate regions tend to produce lower alcohol wines that are 12% or 12.5% , and Germany has one as low as 9%.
