Glass of Wine vs. Chocolate Chip Cookie

Which has more calories?

Answer: Wine. Wine lovers are giddy about research extolling the heart-healthy implications of imbibing. But what about the toll that wine takes on our waists?

Calorie-conscious consumers, take note: A 5-ounce glass of merlot has 122 calories, compared with 78 calories in a chocolate chip cookie from a popular, store-bought brand.

Alcohol’s empty calories can cause you to pack on the pounds. If you need to lose weight, think before you drink.
