Champagne and Your Diet

Okay...it's midnight...everyone is counting down....you have a glass of Champagne in your hand, courtesy of your party hostess.  Time is ticking, five, four, three, two, one...right down to the moment everyone shouts, "HAPPY NEW YEAR!" Even if you are on a diet, you gotta do what you gotta do, right? So, kiss your honey (or someone else's if he's not nearby) and toast everyone around you, then sip a little of that bubbly in your hand. After all tomorrow is a new day AND a new year anyway, right?

So how much diet damage will you do with that one flute of champagne?

According to the Calorie Count website, a 4 oz. glass of Champagne has 91 calories, no fat or protein, and 1.2 grams of carbs. Don't get carried away and grab that bottle out of your hostess's hand however, because getting tipsy on the whole 25.4 fl. oz. bottle of bubbly will add a whopping 495 calories, according to the fitsugar website.

No matter how much you indulge, don't forget to be responsible...Don't drink and drive! And if you need a ride, remember you can call AAA's tipsy tow whether you are a member or not!

Have a happy and safe journey into the 2012 New Year!
