Drink Tequila, Lose Weight

According to a report presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society:

A sweetener created from the plant used to make tequila could lower blood glucose levels for the 26 million Americans and others worldwide who have type 2 diabetes and help them and the obese lose weight, researchers said here today.

The main reason it could be valuable, they explained, is that agavins, a natural form of sugar found in the agave plant, are non-digestible and can act as a dietary fiber, so they would not raise blood glucose. Their report was part of the 247th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society.

As if you needed another reason.

Now, you can tell your significant other, “Honey, I’m going out to lose some weight. Don’t wait up.”
