Ironies of life: to get rid of your beer belly is not necessary to give up your favorite beverage on the contrary. A group of Danish scientists have discovered that men who take, on average, one alcoholic beverage a day were 18% less likely to have flab than those who are not allowed or a drink.
“Drinking alcohol in moderation and with certain regularity could stimulate a metabolic process that breaks down alcohol to produce heat,” says Dr. Janne Tolstrup, author of the study. “This effect could, in turn, increase the number of calories your body burns,” he adds. Experts recommend drinking no more than one drink per day, which contains about 12 grams of alcohol (about the amount in wine 150cc, 350cc 45cc beer or liquor, all standard measures).
