My lead used to say 7 to 7.5 for a bottle of white wine but I used to count 8 to be on the safe side - she used to tell us to save 2 points a day then we could have our vino at the weekend with out worrying!
Cheers Chloe, that is not too bad actually!
To answer your question - not in the least bit fattening! There is no fat at all in white wine - but I think you're wondering about the amount of calories in it. As previous poster said, there's 7.5 points in a bottle of wine - that's at a percentage of about 9 or 10. If you were having a much higher percentage bottle, that may go up to 8 points.
Anyhoo, red is the same as white and compared to drinking beer, which has far more calories, wine is by far the better choice. Alternatively, any "white" spirits with a diet drink or sugar-free tonic is about the same.
Enjoy your few glasses, as long as your not knocking back bottles every night it isn't the worst sin in the world.
