I found that I was drinking one bottle of wine a day and decided to reduce it to one bottle every three days. I don't like raki or any other drink at all, just wine.

And your part of the question is in the subject line.

Vodka, Red wine, coffee - not necessarily in that order. How much depends on my mood.

I have not drunk any red wine for two weeks and have lost 4lb in weight! But I like my wine, beer, gin, and raki - more or less in that order............... But I agree one bottle a day is a little excessive, especially if you are driving!

Same here! Even though I do like to drink white wine, I only like that with friends around

That means slightly more than 1,8kgs in two weeks.


A bottle of red wine contains roughly 600 calories. Add to that the fact that it is also an appetizer. When you consider red wine contains 14% of alchohol on average (volumetric) which means 10.5 cc of alcohol- 1 gr of alcohol contains 7 calories whereas 1 gram of fat has 9- it turns out it is indeed a calory rich drink.

I have found conflicting information on whether alcohol causes weight gain or not:

Chek out this one;

and compare it to this one:

Water-all day long
Beer, wine or vodka-cranberry-socially
