Red Wine--Dieter's Delight!

Drinking does not just improve parenting…but apparently it also helps to keep the weight off. In the New York Times Blog, Well, the post on “Women Who Drink Gain Less Weight” by Tara Parker-Pope finally gives women the green light to drink some red wine with dinner…not that I ever felt the need for a green light in order to drink... But for anyone who was waiting--the time has come to get out the corkscrew.

“The link between consumption of red wine and less weight gain was particularly pronounced in the Archives study. Some studies have suggested that resveratrol, a compound present in grapes and red wine, appears to inhibit the development of fat cells and to have other antiobesity properties.”

Those French women are right again.

I read it and wondered why I'm not skinny then.
