Drink Tequila to Lose Weight
A shot of tequila is not exactly part of a balanced diet, but sugars found within it could offer health benefits to the obese and diabetes sufferers.
Sugars found in the plant that makes tequila could lower blood glucose levels for people with type 2 diabetes, and help obese people lose weight, researchers say.
A type of natural sugar called agavins come from the agave plant, which can be used to make tequila. These sugars (which are not the same as in the more commonly known agave syrup) are non-digestible and do not raise blood sugar, according to Mexican researchers.
The best way though to reduce type 2 diabetes and obesity is a calorie controlled nutrition plan as well as exercise. Weight loss and diabetic management requires careful nutritional planning and exercise progression for it to be successful. Quick fixes or the reliance on unsustainable practices to achieve rapid weight loss is ineffective for long-term success.
But hey if the research tells you so then Tequila it is.
