Research shows that resveratrol, an ingredient fround in grapes, berries and red wine can help turn flab into calorie-burning ‘brown’ fat. Just drink responsibly!
When you drink wine with food — whether at lunch, dinner or with a late-night snack — the antioxidant compounds interact with protein in a way that prevents the body from metabolizing them for weight loss.
When you consume resveratrol on its own, however, the body is able to absorb the compounds more readily, and thus maximize the burning of beige fat.
The resveratrol helps you keep your metabolism fit, because it reduces the apetite and if you drink wine in the evening it helps you sleep better.
There are other fruits that are rich in resveratrol like blueberries, strawberries and (obviously) grapes, so you can consume them if you want to reduce the alcohol in your system.
