Drinking Adult Beverages Can Pack on the Pounds

5 years ago

My sister did not want to believe it and neither did I but the results are in - when you frequently indulge in adult beverages, you are going to easily pack on the pounds. Wine is a tasty, delicious beverage but the adage 'a moment on the lips, forever on the hips', means wine is as fattening as a favored dessert. Rats! For years I did not indulge in alcoholic beverages and then one late afternoon, a girlfriend offered me a glass of red wine from a California winery called Menage a Trois. I loved the taste and I thought, "why not?" Dr Oz had recently recommended a glass before bedtime and the anti-oxidant health benefits of Resveratrol are widely known. Well, it didn't take many evenings of enjoying a glass of wine or two before I began to see my waistline expanding and even my face looked a little puffy. Then I found this article while researching material for this newsletter and thought I would share it with you. "The Secret to Weight Loss - Ditch the Booze!" Read the article and make your own decision. In two weeks of no wine or beer, you will see a slimmer you developing right before your eyes.
