White wine for fish dish a day dine in and DIY menu at my home:)

If you’re a wine lover the calories in a glass of wine may be a concern. A glass of red wine contains 88 calories and a glass of white wine contains 84 calories. As with any alcoholic drinks, moderation is always important.

Bordeaux, Merlot, Chianti, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, and Rose. A glass of wine can compliment any dinner menu and is a true luxury after a long, tiring day. But before reaching for the bottle, it’s important to know how many calories are in one glass of wine.

Alcohol is notriously calorie-ridden but over the recent years wine (especially red wine) has become a favorite beverage of health enthusiasts since it contains high levels of antioxidants and research has shown that wine in moderation can help prevent coronary disease. However, your body burns alcohol before it burns fat, protein, or carbs which can add to extra, unwanted pounds.

The calories in a glass of red wine are 88 calories per glass (3.5 fluid ounces). The calories in a glass of white wine are 84 calories per glass. Red wine calories can add up but it does contain more nutritional benefits than white wine.

Alcohol calories

According to conventional wisdom, the infamous “beer belly” is caused by excess alcohol calories being stored as fat. Yet, less than five percent of the alcohol calories you drink are turned into fat. Rather, the main effect of alcohol is to reduce the amount of fat your body burns for energy.

Some evidence for this comes from research carried in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition . Eight men were given two drinks of vodka and sugar-free lemonade separated by 30 minutes. Each drink contained just under 90 calories. Fat metabolism was measured before and after consumption of the drink.

For several hours after drinking the vodka, whole body lipid oxidation (a measure of how much fat your body is burning) dropped by a massive 73%.

Rather than getting stored as fat, the main fate of alcohol is conversion into a substance called acetate. In fact, blood levels of acetate after drinking the vodka were 2.5 times higher than normal. And it appears this sharp rise in acetate puts the brakes on fat loss.

A car engine typically uses only one source of fuel. Your body, on the other hand, draws from a number of different energy sources, such as carbohydrate, fat, and protein. To a certain extent, the source of fuel your body uses is dictated by its availability.

In other words, your body tends to use whatever you feed it. Consequently, when acetate levels rise, your body simply burns more acetate, and less fat. In essence, acetate pushes fat to the back of the queue.
