Most diets impose a strict ban on the use of alcoholic beverages. Oddly enough, but there is also an alcoholic method of losing weight – a diet on dry wine. Does it allow to improve the shape of the figure? We suggest you find out.
Briefly about the dangers of alcohol
What is the reason for the dislike of nutritionists for alcohol, what harm does it cause to our figures? In fact, the dry law is justified. Alcohol brings “empty” calories – it is sufficiently high in calories, and at the same time it significantly increases the appetite. After alcohol, the stomach produces large quantities of gastric juice, so it is difficult to resist the excess piece. Alcohol is quickly absorbed by the body, so calories have all the chances to turn into fat and "settle" on your sides.
Is dry wine a diet product or an enemy figure?
Dry wine is a unique product. This drink is rich in nutrients, contains a small percentage of alcohol and is not too high in calories (60-80 kcal / 100 ml, which is not so much).
Resveratrol is present in wine – natural phytoalexin secreted by plants for protection against parasites. Scientists have found that this substance helps reduce blood sugar levels and increase the body’s resistance to external negative factors. Thanks to resveratrol, the breakdown of fats is much faster, while the absorption of food lipids slows down.
This substance is an antioxidant – it protects us from oncology and cardiovascular diseases. The wine contains catechins and saponins. These beneficial elements inhibit the oxidation of cholesterol.
Dry wine retains the benefit of the original product – it contains minerals (potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron) and vitamins (PP, B2). The drink contains organic acids, mono – and disaccharides, as well as a small amount of protein and dietary fiber.
