Have you heard of “The Red Wine Diet”?
There’s quite the buzz building about it as of late … so I thought I’d check it out, and give you a quick review …
The Red Wine Diet – Scam or Legit?
I found myself raising an eyebrow when I first heard about this. After all, telling you it’s OK to drink wine in order to lose weight is NOT something I (or for that matter, any of my colleagues) would generally do.
However, the more I discovered about the book, the more I realized it was really about a lifestyle, and not about drinking alcohol.
As I looked through it, I could tell a LOT of consideration had been given to the “wine” piece of the puzzle. Art McDermott’s book, The Red Wine Diet, uses many of the EXACT same approaches I have been talking about – and using – for years.
But, just as importantly, Art gets into the “other side of weight loss”. Things like mindset, stress reduction, and the concept of enjoying the process of shopping, preparing and eating food are all here. The diet itself is something you can actually live with for the long haul.
Now – if you are NOT a drinker, and/or don’t like wine, then clearly this diet is not designed with you in mind. So if that’s the case, don’t buy it.
But if you love the idea of still being able to enjoy wine and lose fat at the same time, it’s very worth checking out.
So there you have it – my short and sweet review of The Red Wine Diet. The title of the book sounds a little “scammy” … but it’s solid, well thought-out resource that – IF you love the idea of enjoying wine, and still losing fat – is worth picking up!
