Italy’s answer to champagne is less calorific than its French cousin, and it’s sweet enough to enjoy with a meal, as well as being perfect for a night out (or in) with the girls. When it comes to wine, prosecco definitely ticks all the boxes. However, as any health guru will tell you, the way to lose weight is to limit your daily intake of calories and do more exercise. The average woman needs to consume 2000 calories every day to maintain her current weight. Consuming anything more than this each day will result in weight gain, and anything less will aid weight loss. As such, it isn’t necessary to deprive yourself of alcohol, you just have to choose a tipple that is low in calories… like prosecco wine!
Low-carb diets are all the rage now, and while white bread and pasta are off limits, a bottle of prosecco is not! In fact, prosecco has less carbs than many non-alcoholic fruit juices. This Italian bubbly suits those on diets because each 5oz glass contains just 98 calories and only 1.5g of carbs. This is especially impressive if you consider that a glass of red or white wine is around 125 calories and contains 3-4g of carbs, while dessert wines contain about 175 calories and 20g of carbs. So, there is no need to avoid that night out with the girls! Simply opt for a diet-friendly alcoholic drink like prosecco and you won’t need to worry about your waistline. Bottoms up!
