If you've packed on some pounds recently, you may want to rethink that glass of resveratrol-rich wine. New research  in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health  reveals that not only are all of the beverage's vaunted health  benefits negated in those with a body mass index of 27.5  or higher (in the middle of the "overweight" range), but  partaking at that body weight could increase your risk of  heart disease, cancer, and other conditions. "Previous findings were based on data that was decades old, when people were generally thinner," explains lead author Tim Lobstein, Ph.D., a director of policy for the International Association for the Study of Obesity. "This is a wake-up call that there's never one magic answer to longevity," says Elizabeth Somer, R.D., a Salem, OR-based nutritionist and SHAPE advisory board member. "You can't just focus on research that promotes something appealing like indulging in wine and run with it.' You could, however, consider the findings an extra incentive to stay fit.

Not-So-Sweet Substitute        

The number of Americans with type 2 diabetes has more than tripled in the last three decades, an epidemic pace that many experts blame, at least in part, on rising obesity rates. Now another culprit is emerging, and it affects plenty of people who aren't overweight: high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Although there's no direct proof yet that this sweetener, found in many processed foods and beverages, causes the disease, a recent study in the journal Global Health showed that type 2 diabetes is 20 percent more prevalent in countries with a high per capita consumption of HFCS and the U.S. tops that list. "Unlike other sugars, fructose is metabolized almost entirely in the liver," explains study coauthor Michael I. Goran, Ph.D., professor of preventive medicine and co-director of the Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute at the University of Southern California. "That makes it more likely to be converted to fat, which can lead to insulin resistance." To curb your consumption, always check the ingredient lists on packaged foods, especially common sources like soda, fruit drinks, and condiments.

Lean and...Easy

Paleo, Blueprint, 5:2... It seems like there's no end to deprivation diets. But it turns out that one of the easiest and most effective methods for dropping pounds may be a trick popularized years ago; Exchange fatty foods for low fat alternatives. According to a review of 33 studies published in the British Medical Journal, making that one simple change can help you drop about 3.5 pounds without following a structured plan. There's no need to focus on the numbers: "Simply choosing lower- fat alternatives consistently leads to decreased weight and a slimmer waist, "says Lee Hooper, Ph.D., a nutrition researcher at Norwich Medical School in the U.K. While the report looked at cutting down on any type of fat, other research shows that specifically curbing saturated fat can also reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke by up to 14 percent, she says. Some painless ways to make the switch include opting for leaner cuts of meat, skinless poultry, and low-fat dairy products, and replacing snacks like cookies and chips with fruit. The more substitutions you make, the more you'll lose - so start today.
