Welcome to our ALCOHOL GUIDE!
We went over...
- the best wines
- the best calorie-free cocktail mixes
- the lowest calorie drinks to order at a restaurant and
- the top 10 lowest calorie beers!
News Flash! - You don't have to drink alcohol.
But we know many of our clients do (and so do I) so we made a "best choices" guide.
Just understand that alcohol is it's own macronutrient (besides protein, fats and carbs)
It contains 7 calories per gram and the calories from alcohol counts towards your total daily calories allowed (if you track calories)
White or red wines are very close in calories so whatever you fancy!
In general, white wines tend to be lower in alcohol and calories than reds but by a very small margin.
While light whites have around 140 calories or less per six-ounce glass, a light red has between 135 to 165 calories, while a higher-alcohol red like pinot noir can have up to 200 in a glass.
Wanna have a glass or two of wine with less calories, sugars and carbs?
Fit Vine Wine is the way to go for sure! They have an extended fermentation process. They ferment to dry which lowers the sugar levels to almost ZERO!
Check this out...
Each glass averages less than .2 grams of sugar per 5 oz. glass and under 4 grams of carbs per glass!
The Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio average approximately 103-108 calories and 2.4g of carbohydrates at 13.4% alcohol (per 5oz glass). The Cabernet and Pinot Noir average approximately 108-118 calories and 3.9g of carbohydrates at 13.9% alcohol.
and they just started selling Rosé 🙂
I've had their wine and it's delicious. I highly recommend it.

Best Cocktail Mix Guide (ZERO carbs or calories)
If you are at home having a drink or hosting a party these zero carb and zero calorie cocktail mixes are a HUGE calorie saver.
They have EVERYTHING...margarita mix, pina colada mix, strawberry margarita mix, mudslide mix, mojito mix, mai tai mix, sweet and sour mix etc...
What's even cooler is that they have the liquid bottles you can get for your home or they have TRAVEL POWDER PACKETS so could bring them with you to a friends house and show off how cool you are LOL!
I have never found them in a store so...
You can get BAJA BOB's mixes online on their website https://www.bajabob.com/ or you can simply go to AMAZON.com and search for whatever mix you want which is what I do because I have Amazon Prime and it gets to you fast and the return policy is the best.
