god help us all if tequila makes you skinny

I guess if you’re dead, you won’t care if you’re skinny. J/K. Here’s the relevant part of the study that Jezebel quoted:

A type of natural sugar called agavins come from the agave plant, which can be used to make tequila. These sugars (which are not the same as in the more commonly known agave syrup) are non-digestible and do not raise blood sugar, according to Mexican researchers.

In new research, the team of scientists fed mice a standard diet, and added agavins to some of their water. They discovered that the mice who consumed agavins ate less overall and had lower blood glucose levels. The effects were stronger than other artificial sweeteners like aspartame and agave syrup. The mice consuming agavins also produced a hormone called GLP-1 that keeps the stomach full longer and produces insulin, which is another reason it could be beneficial for people with diabetes and weight issues.

If tequila science isn’t appealing for you, chocolate has become another magical ingredient for weightloss. All thanks to the fabulous microbes I posted about earlier.

Thanks, science! BUT WHEN WILL YOU VINDICATE CHEETOS?!?
