Who Knew?

We love diligent and comprehensive research into the health benefits or otherwise of wine, and we love the Southland Times  - always up to the minute.

I don’t carry one of those annoying water bottles to the gym any more" Wine, not water

Our local paper yesterday quotes The Sunday Times in an article from Boston about a new study that suggests that "Women who like a glass of wine after work can relax: they are likely to gain less weight than those who stick to  mineral water."

Look at reports past on this blog – it seems as if not only does red wine have properties that may lead to sweeter breath, a longer life, a happier life etc., (in moderation), but now it seems to have dieting advantages!

"Women who are moderate drinkers also have a lower risk of obesity than teetotalers, according to new research. The findings, from a study of 19,000 women, are at odds with dietary advice  that drinking alcohol leads to weight gain.

"The research suggests a calorie from alcohol has less impact than a calorie from other foods, and that the way the body deals with alcohol is more complex than previously realised.

"One theory is that in regular drinkers the liver develops  a separate metabolic pathway  to break down  alcohol, with surplus energy turned mainly into heat, instead of fat. {here’s the good bit...}   In the study, red wine was associated with the lowest weight gain; beer and spirits were linked to the highest weight gain."

Hurrah! Cheers, you slim thing!

We imagine women all over the world, cooing at their svelte selves in the mirror  - "Thanks Two Paddocks!"
