To all my whiners

Who would have thought that indulging in red wine may actually help fight fat?

I recently read an article on the nutrition journal about wine and how it may fight off fat storage. Apparently on a recent Brazilian study they found that red wine consumption increases estrogen production in fat cells, that activate fat breakdown into energy, supresses appetite and reduces storage of adipose tissue.
( Nutrition Journal, 25: 699-705,2009)

So next time you head out for those weekly Margaritas and Mojitos rewind and instead order a glass of red wine :)
