IDM Round-up – March 1, 2019

Megan’s Blog

This week, Megan tackles ‘Fasting Basics: How to get started.’


Let there be wine!

Did you know that drinking small amounts of red wine (preferably organic and without added sugar) has been found to have numerous health benefits?

Red wine has been shown to:

  • reduce inflammation
  • improve artery health
  • lower blood pressure
  • increase HDL

Drinking red wine with a meal offers the greatest health benefits, as it can also reduce postprandial (after meal) blood glucose spikes.

Yet another thing I have been doing right without realising it! Since joining IDM over four years ago my alcohol consumption has dwindled, so I make sure that the little I now drink is the most enjoyable and the best quality I can afford. For me this is wine, mostly red, and with meals, usually dinner, and about 100ml (less than four ounces). It’s rare to find nutritional information for the wines I buy (direct from vineyards in France when I can) but there are usually very few grams of carb in my small glass so I stay LCHF/IF. Cheers!

I’m the same. Since I started, drinking doesn’t really line up with my fasting hours. But, red wine… You have to make time for red wine.
