Tom’s Tip: New Year’s Resolutions

It is a time honoured tradition to resolve to lose weight and exercise more. While that is very important for your health and general well being, that does not mean you have to cut out our favourite ‘adult beverage’. It has been accepted by the medical professionals that wine and beer can be good for you – in moderation of course.

One 5 oz glass of red wine contains about 125 calories and 5.3 gm carbohydrates. Research show that pinot noir has the highest concentration of flavonoids in wine that may protect your cardiovascular system.

One 17oz glass of beer contains about 155 calories and 12.8 carbohydrates. Choose an India Pale Ale if you want your beer to deliver a higher dose of antioxidants.

One 1.5 oz glass of my favourite Scotch whiskey contains about 105 calories.

One 1.5 oz serving of rum has only 97 calories HOWEVER it is the coke you put it in that has way too many calories.

So by all means keep that New Year Resolution to lose weight and exercise more. If you want a glass of wine or beer now and then don’t feel too guilty just keep everything in moderation. Proost.
