Read yet another interesting article online, but this one is of special interest to me (Seeing I'm trying to keep weight off, and I drink wine) The article headline says "Average wine drinker puts on half a stone of fat a year, says campaign group" Apparently wine does what it says in the headline. Here are some statistics that I'll try and remember.. Hic!
Large glass (250ml) of average strength red wine = 214 calories = one bag of Cheesy Wotsits.
A bottle of average strength red wine = 644 calories = 14 jaffa cakes or McDonald's Cheeseburger and medium fries.
Large glass of medium dry white wine = 190 calories = two and a half digestive biscuits.
One pint of premium lager = 330 calories = one four ounce fillet steak
One pint of cider = 200 calories = one KFC chicken drumstick
