Doug:

I don't drink wine often but when I do I like dessert (sweet) wines, of course, says the sugarholic. lol  My favorite is Chateau Morrisette's Sweet Mountain Laurel which is a sweet white wine.  Does it matter that it's a sweet wine even though it's white?  Is it still .9 net carbs or does it need to be a dry wine?  My hubby is really frustrated with me that I won't drink any since I started the program except my birthday weekend.  He likes our romantical nights to include wine. lol
Peace and blessings,

Should we configure that answer in metric or standard?

It's always had to get actual numbers from wineries so I suggest you go by taste. If its a sweet dessert wine then chances are it has a sugar content from the fermentation process. According to the web this is the phone number for the winery- (540) 593-2865. Give them a call and ask them if they can give you a sugar count.  ;)

I always google anything I want to know carb count in. sauvignon blanc is my favoritr white wine.
I discovered on google it has about 3 carbs so that is what I go by.

I think it's rotten that alcoholic beverages aren't required to post nutritional information on their labels. What's up with that?

I'm not a big drinker, but my favorite beer is Moosehead and I see conflicting carb counts online. They list anywhere from 5 to 13 or so.  >:(

Over the past month while working on our home maintenance in the Florida Keys I added 1 can of Busch non alcoholic beer per day into my plan for a treat while working. I should'nt have done it

I GAINED 5 POUNDS!!!  :o :o :o

The beer didn't taste that darn good  >:( >:( >:(

Well, that just sucks. They need to come out with a diet beer.  :D :D :D I mean, one that actually tastes GOOD. I haven't been brave enough to try a Michelob Ultra yet. I could barely stand the regular one when I tasted it years ago. I might have to splurge and have a Moosehead while in Canada at Epcot ... but just one. ;)
