    Unlucky me, I've never been a red wine drinker. My more elderly relatives had it at family dinners, and might offer me some as I became a teenager. I'd get an instant pounding migraine headache. Tannins? I just avoided it and still very seldom drink it.

    Several of my father's doctors recommended brandy and cognac for his heart condition, an old belief that existed long before these modern studies. When derived from grapes I wonder if brandy retains the red wine health benefits stated in this article, especially retaining resveratrol?

    Or does the distillation and wood cask aging process diminish them? Be interesting to see a study on that, too. But again, unlike Dad drinking his cognac it was never high on my list of likes.

    Another derivative from red wine is sherry, for which I would ask the same question. Now that's something I can drink a little (or rather sip very slowly), especially cream sherry.

    Only true for pussies for whom an hour in the gym means cardio, spin, yolates, with limp wrists aflail. In other words, the male readership of HuffPo.

    So, a glass of red wine is like an hour in the gym? Doing what? It's definitely not going to give me the arms, the chest, the delts, the lats, or the abs that I want. Drinking wine does not burn calories, it does not build bulk.

    So, even though red wine seems to have some health benefits, it is no replacement for effective exercise.

    As the article makes very clear, red wine is not a direct replacement for exercise when people are still capable of being active. It can supplement. And might be especially beneficial to those who, like me, have mobility and range of motion problems that severely limit or prohibit exercise.

    Red wine may be another tool in the health arsenal. Not the ONLY tool. Just like cardio is another tool. But I would like to see stronger proofs presented, with this concept better vetted over time.

    Metta has officially lost his fucking mind. Why don't you just start posting directly from the National Enquirer?

    There is no substitute for exercise. None. Anyone who thinks you can sit around sipping a glass of wine to be fit needs round-the-clock supervision. And the nerve to post this on a fitness website of all places. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I once bought a bag of resveratrol supplement chews, touted for anti aging benefits, and I ate one a day and felt like a million bucks. My skin was radiant, etc. Then the bag ran out, and the store I'd purchased them from stopped carrying them.icon_confused.gif

    I think I'll look into similar products. I have a cold right now, and I'm not feeling my best. But every little bit helps!!

    Yes, that's essentially what I think the underlying study was trying to say, but the article didn't report it very well. Sometimes editors sensationalize these studies for attention-grabbing headlines.

    As I wrote above, the more things we have in our arsenal to use for improved health the better. You wouldn't want only 1 tool in your toolbox, but rather a good selection. I really don't understand the hostility here, with an almost deliberate attempt not to comprehend the study's message.

    And from the article Update link: 'One of these chemicals [in red wine], ellagic acid, reduced the growth of existing fat cells and the formation of new ones. It also boosted the metabolism of fatty acids in the liver cells - but sadly these findings don't necessarily mean red wine is the solution to losing weight.

    "We didn't find, and we didn't expect to, that these compounds would improve body weight," Neil Shay, a biochemist and molecular biologist at OSU told Science Daily.'

    If drinking made you fit, some people around here would have their IFBB Pro card.

    That is not even remotely what the study found. Why repost such stupid crap?

    Now I shall spend six hours in the gym this afternoon!

    I do think that setting a time aside late in the afternoon for a quiet drink and some pleasant thoughts is a good idea.

    Try Amontillado, Art. Not too sweet and quite flavorful.

    Actually, I get some resveratrol every morning with a good helping of blueberries on my oatmeal. I am a fan of frozen unsweeted blueberries from Costco at a very good price and plain oatmeal. Filling, good fiber and great taste.

    Agree with others above, Huffington post did a poor job reporting on original study. Plus, study has not been replicated (?) and looks like some conclusions are hypothetical.

    That means that people will no longer have to train to win marathons; they can drink a few glasses of wine every day instead. Body builders can simply drink wine; no more need to work out in gymnasia. No more bariatric surgery; doctors will simply instruct their obese patients to drink wine.

    The only problem I can see is that gyms will close thereby forcing gym employees out of work and investors to lose their investments.

    The Huffington Post as proven itself to be an impeccably reliable source of information upon which we can rely with complete confidence.

    Why do you impugn the integrity of the National Enquirer? Enquiring minds respect the impeccable integrity of the Enquirer.

    Ugh... I hate this kind of journalism. This study was published back in May 2012. Old news not new (note: HuffPost UK). And the content is so ... WRONG. Basically, CLICKBAIT. icon_evil.gif

    If Jesus was a gym owner he'd turn water fountains into wine fountains.

    The post is dated and misleading. icon_rolleyes.gif Here is an update:

    A popular UK website recently published a story with the headline, "A glass of red wine is the equivalent to an hour at the gym, says new study" with the sub-headline "New research reveals skipping the gym in favour of the pub is ok."

    "We didn't use any red wine in our study nor did we recommend not going to the gym," said Dyck.
    "When you see all your hard work distilled down to one phrase that isn't correct it's a little disheartening."

    The article asserting that drinking wine is the equivalent to spending an hour at the gym simply shows that the media cannot be trusted to be accurate. One problem with that is that unless we are familiar with the subject, we may not be able to detect untrue and misleading statements. No doubt all of us have been misled a few times by inaccurate media reporting.

    My Republicanism was so unrabid that I changed parties a few years ago. My siblings did the same thing.
