If you have weight-loss goals, you don’t have to completely focus on all the foods you shouldn’t eat. Instead, turn your attention to fat-burning foods you should be eating more of, like red wine vinegar. In a study published in the journal Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry,researchers found that red wine vinegar actually helps reduce overall body fat content. After determining that acetic acid (a main component of vinegar) suppressed body fat accumulation in animals, researchers set out to uncover whether the same holds true for humans. They worked with obese individuals during a 12-week period to see how vinegar intake affected metabolism. In the end, every participant who consumed red wine vinegar showed a significant drop in BMI, body weight, waist circumference, and visceral fat area. The overall conclusion was that red wine vinegar can indeed reduce general body fat.
