Wines that are perfect if you're going on a diet

Going on a diet is one of the hardest things to do. Mainly because it involves eliminating food that makes you happy for foods that make your taste buds sad.

When eliminating high calorie and high sugar foods from your diet, one of the first things to go is alcohol, but there are a few wines that are fine to keep enjoying.

Studies have proven time and again that red wine is good for your heart health and isn't bad for a diet focused on weight loss either.

According to a registered dietician, Tanya Zuckerbrot, Merlot or Pinot Noir are good choices for those counting calories.

However, if white wine is your drink of choice, for less than 85 calories and a gram of sugar per glass you can have your choice of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc or White Zinfandel.

A little alcohol to look forward to at the end of a day of veggies might just help you stick to your plan!
