When trying to lose weight it is important to count every single calorie and carb that goes into our bodies. It can be very easy to overlook calories and carbs derived from beverages such as soda, milk and wine. With that said, lets take a closer look at how many carbs in a glass of wine there are.
The carb count varies depending on the type of wine. Port wines have the most carbs. One 5 ounce serving of port wine has about 14 grams of carbs in it. The carbs in wine are left over from the grapes. Fragments of sugar are left over and become carbs.
Dry wines have the fewest carbs with about .5 grams of carbs per 5 ounce serving. White wine averages about 4 grams of carbs. The average 5 ounce serving of wine (white or red) has 5 grams of carbs in it. So if you're concerned about your intake of carbs you will want to avoid port wines and stick with dry wines. As far as calories go the average glass of wine has about 123 calories per 5 ounce serving.
Now that you know how many carbs and calories are in wine it is important to know that they can add up fast and ruin your weight loss efforts in a hurry. Its easy to see why weight loss experts say to avoid alcohol.
