How much wine should a woman drink every day?

Ms. Ashley Koff, RD
Nutrition & Dietetics
If you are a woman, you can still have your wine and drink it, too. But be mindful of how much you are consuming. A drink while you cook, then another glass or two at dinner can amount to too much. It will disrupt your sleep cycles and potentially disturb your digestion as well. For most women, one five-ounce glass is plenty. Savor it with your meal and drink sparkling water with a wedge of lemon or orange while you cook.
