Can a diet that allows you to drink wine really help you lose weight long-term? can we ever really lose weight and still enjoy some of the things we love?
Well apparently this new ‘cheat day trick’ could really help you lose weight – and it means you don’t have to sacrifice some of your favourite foods of all the time.
There have been many studies that have highlighted the potential benefits of eating chocolate. If you eat dessert for breakfast it could actually aid weight-loss. Why? Because it reduces your sugar cravings. However, like any food high in sugar and fat, chocolate is not a ‘healthy choice’ at any time of day.
So, while you can’t tuck into a chocolate pudding in the mornings in the name of ‘dieting’, you could treat yourself every now and again in you wanted too. This is because when trying to lose weight – and keep it off – it’s more sustainable to make little sacrifices over a long period of time
if you weigh yourself daily, and then adjust your food intake accordingly, you’ll discover what your ‘baseline body weight’ is. So if you ever suddenly put on two or three pounds at once, you’ll know which foods caused it and know to cut down or cut them out for a while.
So, how does it work? Well, according to the study wine contains resveratrol, a type of polyphenol that turns ‘white fat’ into ‘beige fat,’ making it easier to burn off.
It’s important to remember, this diet won’t work for everyone, but it is a proven way to aid weight loss – and we’re willing to give any a diet a try that still lets us enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day
Although using fruit instead of wine for this process, everything in moderation surely won’t hurt.
