Okay, so they probably don’t belong together, but in my world they do. I am part of a Biggest Loser competition with my girlfriends and we actually have a trainer coordinating it and weighing us so it’s pretty official. Plus there’s $1000 in the pot for our winner.
Wine: Whether you prefer red (that’s me) or white, drinking wine has been shown to be good for heart health in certain groups of people (hopefully me.) White wine’s protection comes from tryosol and caffeic acid, which reduces oxidative stress and inflammation. Red wine’s polyphenols appear to confer its heart benefits. Several studies show that red wine in moderation (is that 2 or 3 glasses?) lowers homocysteine, platelet stickiness and LDL “bad” cholesterol.
Life is good.
P.S. – moderation is actually one or two small glasses – that still rocks!
