How large is your glass of wine?

Alcohol is free flowing, and unhealthy and tempting food is everywhere.

How do you keep it in check? Does your glass of wine look like this one on the left? In the US, a standard serving of wine is 5 ounces, which is about 125-150 calories. Each ounce adds approximately 25 calories.

I frequently go to a local bar where the wine comes in either 6 or 9 ounce pours. I’ve yet to see a dining companion order the 6 ounce pour!

Gail Curtis, a designer based in Oregon, created the Wine-Trax glass.

You could find Wine-Trax at Amazon and get instant savings.

Her purpose: “to help others achieve their wellness goals by bringing a commonsense approach to portion control which is discreet, effortless and elegant.”

The glasses have three lines showing 4, 6 or 8 ounces. The glasses are available in sets of 2 for $28.50.

Personally, I enjoy all that the holidays have to offer and just try to work it off by playing lots of tennis and dancing up a storm at parties.

What strategies do you use to control holiday overeating?
