WORRIED ABOUT “HIDDEN” CARBS?
You’ve got one choice here. Keep on deluding yourself that FitDay and the USDA websites are giving you accurate information for wine counts and then try to figure out why the pounds aren’t coming off as fast as you expected, or purchase our most comprehensive list of the carb counts on wines & beers. If you’re going to drink while low carbing, drink intelligently!
Don’t rely on “average” carbohydrate counts!
Not everybody drinks beer. Even I sneak a gin & diet tonic or two during the summer. After a rough Saturday night, you might even see me with a Bloody Mary in my hand while enjoying my Sunday brunch. But the thing is, I still try to keep the carbs to a minimum, even if I sometimes get a wee bit carried away with the concept of moderate drinking.
I’m certainly not going to lecture you on the problems of excessive alcohol consumption. We’re all adults here…we make our own choices, and surely that means maintaining our best
efforts with moderation in drinking (and eating). But if you’re watching your carbohydrate intake, I’ll do the best I can to make your low carbohydrate lifestyle an easy one, whether with a beer, wine or a cordial in your hand!
************ Sort of funny, but I’ll say it again; all the nonsense you get from the USDA website and the other “diet” sites that want to give “average” carbohydrate counts for wine at a standard serving of 4 ounces and a beer at 12 ounces are wrong, wrong, wrong!
Guess what? They are so far off the mark that they bring full circle to the same argument I use for noting the carbohydrate counts in beer…there is no such thing as “average!” Wine brands have different residual sugar levels (so do beer brands). To say that white wines or red wines have so many “average” carbs per serving is to put it as…well…I think it’s scandalous!
I read the carb-centric websites. I see the same questions over and over on low carb bulletin boards about the carbohydrate counts of beer, wine and booze and yet most dieters will listen to some “expert” with a slick website who has posted the same old tired averages of the carbs in wine, liquors and liqueurs and cordials or links to the USDA website.
