Wine Could Be Sabotoging Your Diet

Women drinking wineWine is wonderful, but it could be sabotaging your diet.  I have been watching my food intake for two months and have lost  seven pounds.  I have to say, I feel virtuous when I go to the grocery store and pass up my favorite comfort foods.  Especially the half gallon of ice cream I keep in my freezer for those rough days when emotional eating is impossible to avoid.

But, as good as we try to be, sometimes a girl just needs a glass of wine.

When I do succumb I always find myself saying life is too short to give up all the things we love. And. even though there is about 135 calories in each glass, it feels worth it. 

I read that less than a third of adults realize there are 134 calories in a glass of wine, but nearly half know there are 337 calories in a cheeseburger.

So if we can't have both – and we can't if we want to stay trim and healthy, which would you choose?  The wine or the cheeseburger?
