But have you thought about the carbohydrate content in drinks? The carbohydrates in a glass of wine are minimal compared to calories. A glass of wine has only 0.5 grams of carbohydrates but 83 calories. Alcohol burns faster than fat, protein, and carbohydrates so even if you’re on a low carb diet, wine should not be your low carb drink of choice.
If you’re looking to lose weight, diet experts suggest cutting alcohol out of your diet. Alcohol contains calories with no added nutritional value.

If you’re on a low carb diet be aware that even food and drinks with low carb content can contain high amounts of calories, which will add unwanted pounds. If you’re having a glass of wine with dinner, try to enjoy it for what it is and not part of any diet plan.
