Fatty McOversized McDrunk 

We all know that drinking is good for us. It may or may not strengthen our bones, and lower our cholesterol, but it does make us happy. But now there's even more good news about one of my favorite drinks: red wine.

A compound which may be found in red wine, resveratrol, seems to increase the activity of SIRT1, which needs a cooler name. Increased SIRT1 has been found to increase fat metabolism and inhibit fat cell formation. Woo-hoo!! More red wine and chocolate!
