Our expert says:
Although red wine has been found to be good for heart health because it contains a lot of antioxidants, it does contain about 300 kJ per 100 ml, thus your 2 x 200 ml will add 1200 kJ to your energy intake every day. If your are trying to lose weight you should ingest about 6300 kJ per day and the wine you drink will, therefore, provide 19% of your daily energy intake, which is quite a lot. This means that you will have to cut back somewhere else to 'save' the 1200 kJ you obtain from the wine. The other option is to only have half a glass of wine day (300 kJ which is 4,8% of you daily energy intake.
