Our expert says:
The SA Food Tables do not specify the energy content of commercial brands of alcohol. According to the Tables, wines contain about 71 cal per 100 ml, so you can work out how many cal you obtain from the wine depending on the volume you ingest. The Savannah Light is not listed, so I can only hazard a guess that it is also about 70 cal per 100 ml. Let's say you have 1 glass or 250 ml, then the wine would provide about 175 cal which represents 11,7% of your daily energy intake when you want to lose weight (i.e. 1500 cal/day), which is quite high. You can compensate for this extra energy intake by doing regular exercise for 30 min a day.
