The Wine Diet - Is Wine Good For You?
Wine has become a hot topic when discussing health and wellness, often on social media. And wine is in vogue because some of the healthiest diets, including the wholesome Mediterranean Diet, include wine for its health benefits.
Word to the wise, some blogs even promote fad diets like the wine & egg diet — based on a hard-boiled egg in every meal. Still, wine’s benefits shouldn’t be with crazy trends because they are backed by scientific studies.
Regularly drinking a single glass of wine, specifically red wine, can aid weight loss by converting stubborn white fat cells into easier-to-burn brown fat cells. Drinking wine can be part of a balanced meal plan and maintain a healthy lifestyle in a well-rounded diet plan.
Is a Wine Diet Healthy?
Alcohol consumption is a serious topic. Alcoholic beverages are generally unhealthy, especially if you drink a bottle of wine daily. So-called crash diets can do more harm than good, and the effects of alcohol long term are not to be taken lightly if not in moderation.
Wine contains alcohol which contains carbohydrates, and carbs add up. Some types of white wine (Chardonnay) are relatively low-calorie, A five-ounce pour of Prosecco (for instance) only has 90 calories and is even suitable for low-carb diets like Keto.
So, what’s so good about drinking wine? Like other beverages, including black coffee, tea, and other items like olive oil, wine has antioxidants in the form of polyphenols and resveratrol.
