Tequila Is Now A Legitimate Diet

By Queen Elizabetch

The best tbt in the world is the smell of a tequila shot. Nothing brings back memories of freshmen dorms, Mexican clubs, and the worst hangover of your life like the smell of a $16 handle of tequila.


The American Chemical Society - so like the opposite of AA - did a study and found that tequila is the ultimate diet drink. The agave plant used to make tequila has unique sugars which "are non-digestible, so they won't raise your blood sugar." So basically a tequila shot is a mini salad. It means that drinking tequila is actually low-cal, because the sugar isn't like the kind of sugars in chocolate and non-diet sodas. Tequila was the official diet drink of my sorority, not because of the agave sugars but because we didn't eat dinner before going out - I mean, eating is cheating.

The mice the American Chemical Society tested with agave sugars ate less, had lower blood sugars, and "produced a hormone which keeps the stomach full longer." That's science for tequila can help you lose weight. So your official holiday diet - do a couple tequila shots each night and don't binge eat mozzarella sticks at 2 am. You're welcome.
