Wine and dine like a celebrity, guilt free!

Have you ever wondered how celebrities are always seen out and about, wining and dining, but somehow, never seem to pack on the pounds?

One of their secrets may be Skinny Vine wine. Skinny Vine wine is a new california wine that claims to keep you skinny! How so, you ask? With less than 100 calories per glass, you can enjoy more than one glass, guilt free, without having to plan your next visit to the gym.

The low calorie wine is made with a special filtration process that removes some of the alcohol in the wine taking away a bunch of the unnecessary calories with it. And dont worry about the taste being taken away, Skinny Vine makers are so confident that you won’t be able to taste the difference between theirs and other wines on the market, that they are having a skinny vine wine taste challenge, challenging customers to see if they can taste the difference.

You can have your drink of choice with three different types of wine available to choose from moscato, chardonnay, and zin.

Skiny Vine wine claims their wine is “as sweet on the lips as it is on the hips”.

Jennie Garth’s Weight Loss Struggle

20130307-182356.jpg

Breaking up with her ex boyfriend caused Jennie Garth to lose 30lbs last year. However the former 90210 actress admits she struggled with keeping the weight off.

Unsure if she would find love again, to Jennie’s surprise, she has found love with both fitness and a new boyfriend. Learn what keeps her committed to working out as she opens up with Fitness Magazine.

What’s your fitness routine like these days?

I’m really into hiking and jogging with my dog right now. I recently got a really big dog and he needs exercise all the time, so that is something that is new for me. I work out in a gym with a trainer two to three days a week on top of that.

How do you make time for exercise?

I have to physically schedule it. I put it on the calendar at least three days a week–it’s that simple. You have to make time for yourself, and that might mean moving some things around but it’s important. Usually I take my kids to school in workout clothes so that when I drop them off I make sure I don’t go somewhere else. If I’m dressed for the day, there’s no going back!

You got a lot of press for shedding weight last summer and you’ve definitely kept it off. How do you do it?

Protein snacks throughout the day are huge; I love turkey rolls with avocado in it. I usually start the day off with a green smoothie with greens, aloe vera juice, coconut oil—all that good stuff. I also try not to eat too late, that’s another big one. None of this stuff is new and we hear it all the time–I just started to incorporate them into my daily life.
