I’ve been on the diet for a month now and wondering if I’ll ever be able to enjoy wine again. I live in wine country. It’s pretty tough not to. So- any thoughts on these latest studies?

YES!

I *just this morning* read an abstract about the antibacterial/antifungal activity of wine extracts. Apparently the phenolic acids are helpful.

At this point,if I could go on a red wine fast, id do it. Wine for breakfast,lunch,and dinner.
Maybe in between snacks too.

Im just waiting for THAT study to come out, and sister, Im there.
