Dea Diets has arrived!

Brush away those January blues by taking part in Dea Diets!

January can be bad enough without the dreaded ‘D’ word (detox, diet, depressing….you choose!) so here at Dea Latis, we have vowed to attempt to shift those extra Christmas pounds by not giving up alcohol completely, but by swapping wine for beer!

Did you know, a 175ml glass of white wine at 12% abv contains 131 calories whereas a half pint of standard beer at 3.8% abv contains only 85 calories. Beer has a lower alcohol by volume – typically between 4-5% ABV – compared to wine, at between 12-14% ABV.

So let us know if you’re joining in by commenting on this post below. And if you are, keep a note of your weight now, and let us know how much you’ve lost!

  1. Okay, on Day 3 of the great beer for wine swap (delayed start due to medication non-conducive to alcohol consumption). Enjoyed a Kirin Ichiban at Wagamama on Friday (though who’d drink wine (even rice wine) with Japanese food. And a glass of Meantime London Porter yesterday with what feels like my 100th slice of Christmas cake – really lovely and warming and satisfying, was happy with one glass, whereas with wine the bottle’s always drained. So, I’m drinking less of a lower ABV drinks, therefore, my calorie intake must be dow = a good thing!
