A new study claims that drinking a glass of red wine before can help women shed those extra stubborn pounds. Red wine contains a specific polyphenol known as “reservatrol” which acts as an antioxidant in the body.
According to research conducted at Washington State University and Harvard Medical School, the classic red wine beverage is great for those looking to drop a few unwanted pounds of fat. According to Positive Outlooks Blog, the reservatrol converts our white fats into “obesity-fighting” beige fat that is a lot easier for the body to break down. This wonderful antioxidant-like agent also suppresses ones appetite, so drinking red wine before going to bed might help you not give in to your midnight snack cravings as well should you be so inclined.
For those who are not big drinkers or if you are just not a fan of red wine, you can still reap the same fat-fighting benefits by eating blueberries and peanuts. Both contain a high level of reservatrol as well.
In a separate study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2010, those women with normal-weight who drink one glass of red wine a day, are less likely to become overweight or obese. The study also noted that heavy drinking of any type of alcoholic beverage can result in weight gain, but that’s not the only problem with over drinking. Consuming alcoholic drinks beyond the recommended moderate level (one glass of wine for women and two glasses of wine for men) has been shown to lead to liver inflammation, a huge spike in your blood pressure, and an increase in your risk of acquiring cancer.
Obviously, cleaning up your diet and eating whole foods as opposed to processed foods will also positively benefit the body in many more way than just the loss of a few pounds. One could also consider drinking more water instead of alcohol if looking to shed some fat weight. Water contains no calories, helps keep the body hydrated (as opposed to the dehydrating effect of alcohol).
