Chardonnay is a very popular white wine. People trying to lose weight often wonder how many calories they are consuming when drinking a glass of wine. Everyone knows that drinking too much alcohol can stop your weight loss efforts right in their tracks. So how many calories in a glass of chardonnay are there? The answer is 95 calories based upon a standard 5 ounce glass.
Chardonnay is actually the lowest calorie white wine there is. Most of white wines are between 118-125. That number bodes well for Chardonnay lovers trying to drop some weight.
White wine consumed in small quantities on occasion is actually good for you because it contains immune boosting antioxidants from the fruit. If you’re trying to lose weight there’s no reason you should not be able to enjoy a glass of Chardonnay now and again over dinner. Just make sure to keep it at a one glass maximum other wise the calories could really add up.
To put it in perspective, one glass of Chardonnay containing 95 calories would take about 10-15 minutes to burn off jogging on a treadmill for most people. So as long as you’re willing to put in the extra work or to cut calories somewhere else then you should be fine. Keep the Chardonnay consumption to 3-5 glasses per week, otherwise you’ll end up consuming too many empty calories.
