Hi guys! I am sending this out because I have a new product that I am selling personally, not through the business, but John will be selling it as well. It is a wine that I discovered that we believe is a slightly better choice than other alcohols for a few reasons.

Now I usually encourage all of you to NOT consume alcohol – especially if you are trying to lose weight. There are many reasons for that.

  • First of all, alcohol is often calorically high and nutritionally low – meaning it will make you fat AND it’s not really very good for you.
  • When your body consumes alcohol, it perceives the alcohol itself as poison so it stops metabolizing the other nutrients (food) in your body and focuses on processing the poison out of your body. That means you are no longer burning fat and everything you have eaten will now go to storage, aka turn to fat.
  • Alcohol tends to lower your inhibitions, which can lead to more eating, usually mindless eating and usually food that is higher in fat (calories) which you normally wouldn’t eat. And, since your body is now processing the alcohol, all of that food is turned to storage (fat).
  • Finally, you wake up hungover and hangry!!!

So knowing all of that, as a nutritional counselor attempting to help you LOSE weight, why would I tempt you with wine?

The answer is easy. I know you. And I know that every now and then you want a glass of wine, and you’re going to do it anyway, so I might as well offer you a slightly healthier option. That option is Scout and Cellar Wines.

Scout and Cellar is a collection of wines from all over the world that satisfy the “Clean Crafted Commitment”. That means that all of the wines in this collection are naturally grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and without added sugars or non-organic chemicals to modify texture, flavor, color or aroma. That means less sugar per serving (which means fewer calories) and no chemicals or purple teeth, which in turn means a much lower incidence of suffering from a hangover! No hangover means you are much less like to go on a Hangry food binge the next day and you’re more likely to make your workout! All of this together leads to a much healthier lifestyle!

Now I want to clarify that I am NOT encouraging you to drink more or even to drink – I’m simply saying that if you are going to imbibe, then this is a healthier option and it could help you stick to your weight loss goals a little bit more easily.

So, if you are interested in purchasing one of these incredible wines, go to www.scoutandcellar.com/odyssey from there you can purchase individual wines OR you can join the wine club. Our club works like this: You pick the number of bottles you’d like to receive, as well as how often you’d like to receive them (monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly).
