Most men and women can't imagine a life without alcoholic drinks. Whiskey, rum, vodka, champagne, beer, wine and various cocktails form an invariable part of daily diet. Many times, people don't realize that alcohol beverages add calories to their daily calorie intake, leading to weight gain. Lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyle and excessive calories result in various health conditions like obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. It is good that more and more people are becoming conscious about diet and calories. Take a look at the chart of calories in wine first. Women who prefer wine should be aware of calories in wine. Daily calorie intake plays a major role in gaining or losing weight.
