I do think that if you meet your calorie goals you should be ok, but keep in mind that you'll be sacrificing nutrition, especially since it's not easy to meet all your vitamin and mineral needs at 1300 calories. For sure take a multivitamin. Also make sure you're not sacrificing protein for the wine calories, since it's so vital to muscle growth and thus metabolism.

I love beer, but when I'm really trying to keep my calories in check I have champagne instead. It's MUCH lower in calories. Sure, it's more expensive, but it's a trade off. Depending on the calorie count of the wine you're drinking, you might want to check out if champagne is a better calorie choice for you. Mmmm, now I want some!
