Glass of Wine

For many people, the holidays are the best time to pour it up. Good conversation may have you refilling without realizing. Five fluid ounces of red wine is at least 125 calories, and drinking two or three more glasses is almost equivalent to eating another slice of pie. Drink less or none at all to avoid calories. Water may not be as fun, but it will quench your thirst. Walking time: 1 hour 25 minutes.
