There are a huge number of diets out there at the minute. Some come in and out of fashion but the diet industry is always booming.
One of the most popular at the minute is the Optavia diet. I know from personal experience it can be hard to keep a track of what you can and can’t eat or simply what is the “least worst” option if you must have a treat.
As a subscription, it is only available in the US, Canada and Australia.
Can you drink non alcoholic wine on the Optavia diet?

Why is alcohol not recommended on Optavia diet?
There are a few reasons why alcohol is not recommended on the Optavia diet. For one, alcohol can quickly lead to weight gain, as it is high in calories and sugar.
Additionally, alcohol can interfere with the body’s natural ability to burn fat, making it more difficult to lose weight on the Optavia diet.
Finally, alcohol can also dehydrate the body and make it more difficult to stick to the diet plan.
Which non alcoholic wines to have on Optavia diet?
These 5 wines are the lowest carb, non alcoholic wines that i can find. That means they are just about the lowest in calories too. They would be best suited to drink on the Optavia diet.
Absolute Zero Dry 1.1g/100ml
Hailing from South Africa, it is hard to believe this wine only has 1.1g per 100ml and it is a brilliant achievement to have made a wine like this. Hats off to Absolute Zero.
Two Hoots Non Alcoholic Rose 2.1g/100ml
Apart from losing the top spot, the Aussies absolutely boss the low carb non alcoholic wine world. They have taken the non alcoholic wine bull by the horns and lead the world.
This Two Hoots rose comes in at 2.2g of carbs per 100ml. Despite having twice the carbs of Absolute Zero Dry, this still takes second spot. It shows just how low 1.1g per 100ml really is.
The other thing that makes this so impressive is that in general, rose wines are sweeter, higher in sugar and therefore higher in carbs. To produce a tasty one as low carbs as this is quite the achievement.
Giesen Sauvignon Blanc 2.5g/100ml
Another Aussie comes in at number 3, Giesen is a big name in the Marlborough area and with their zero Sauvignon Blanc they have produced a very low carb wine.
They are helped slightly by southern hemisphere sauvignon blanc grapes being reasonably dry (low sugar) but there is still plenty of work to do to make a great wine which is also very low in carbs.
Tread Softly Everything Except Pinot Grigio 2.7g/100ml
No prizes for guessing where the 4th lowest carb non alcoholic wine comes from, that’s right, Australia. This time is hails from the Victoria and South Australian vineyards.
Pinot Grigio is one of the driest grapes about so that certainly helps keep the sugar and carbs to a minimum.
The added selling point or USP of this brand is their vegan stature and that they are committed to a carbon neutral product. They even plant a native Australian tree for every case sold!
Newblood Chardonnay 3g/100ml
Rounding out the top 5 is once again, an Australian non alcoholic white wine. Chardonnay isn’t the driest wine but it isnt the most sugar laden grape out there.
Newblood is a triple distilled and alcohol removed wine with a vibrant bouquet of citrus blossom and honeysuckle. What’s not to like?
