One of the most common problems in our society today is obesity. Obesity is not just a physical ailment but a psychological and emotional one as well. No matter who we are, we are always concerned about how we look. “Do I look good in this shirt?” “Do these jeans make me look fat?” We encounter these questions in our everyday lives. As a rotund character in one of the Austin Powers movies said it, “I’m unhappy because I eat. I eat because I’m unhappy.” Obesity is not just a state of being. It’s a cycle.
Obesity poses a problem psychologically. Self esteem is greatly affected by our outlook on ourselves and when we can’t project ourselves the way we ought to, self esteem just drops. Sometimes the only remedies people can think of is go to the nearest McDonald’s and eat their hearts away – literally. Fast foods, particularly in the United States are quite delectable and convenient. However, the convenience of fast food has a trade off in the form of transfat and LDL also known as bad cholesterol. These elements are very harmful to the body especially when taken in excess. In addition to being harmful, they also contribute to the increasing number of obese people, not only in the United States but across the world as well.
There is one anomaly in the obesity equation. France holds the record of the fattiest foods known to man. Pate, fois gras, olive oil, all these are so rich in fat it makes the chicken wings back in America look like health food! But the biggest mystery that boggles everyone until now is why the French are not as obese as Americans. The French eat 3 meals a day, often with multiple courses starting with the hors d’oeuvres going to the appetizers, the meats, soups and desserts. That’s a whole lot more than most of us order anywhere regardless of serving size!
How do they do it? Do the French have some sort of vortex in their stomachs that just zaps the food they eat into nothingness? The answer lies in a very simple answer: Red wine.
French meals, especially the ones with multiple courses are always accompanied by wine depending on the course. Appetizers often start of with white wine, Red wine for red meat, pork, and other fatty food like duck liver. The red wine is ALWAYS part of the meal.
Now, what in the world does red wine have that keeps the French looking slim? Not only that, with all the fatty food they eat, why do they manage to stay healthy? If you’ve seen the movie “Supersize me” in which the protagonist/documenter eats nothing but McDonald’s for one month, you’d realize how unhealthy foods with unsaturated fats are. In one month, he gained more than 10 lbs, and his liver became quite enlarged. Why doesn’t that happen to the French? Why doesn’t France have high cases of obesity, heart disease, cardiovascular disease and even cancer?
