Wine, Chocolate and Carb Consumption Equals Weight Loss In Sonoma, California

SONOMA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chocolate, booze and bread products are usually frowned upon in the diet world, but they’re all encouraged as part of something called “The Sonoma Diet.”

Connie Guttersen – who has a PhD in Nutrition with a focus on obesity – explains that cutting out things like bread will only give you “crazy cravings” and reveals, “I think dark chocolate is an indulgence we all should enjoy. It has the same anti-oxidants as in red wine.”

In fact, Guttersen’s new diet manual, The Sonoma Diet (Meredith Books), recommends daily wine consumption because she says it protects you from Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancer and diabetes and the vino helps you to eat slower and savor foods like Chili Ginger Beef and Wild Mushroom Risotto.

While the wining and dining on this diet seems to require little restraint, Guttersen insists it’s better to eat good foods and observe portion control than starve yourself on diet shakes.

In her words, “My inspiration was my dad. He struggled with fad diets. He would sit at the table drinking those shakes while we had a meal. It was awful.”
