Wines & Weight Loss
Many of us come up with different healthy solutions when we are kicking off each New Year. It can be, a low-/no-carb diet, a low-fat diet or just a good and old fashioned diet or doing more exercise. A lot of experts and doctors recommend to stay away from alcohol in order to lose weight.
Today is the right time for us to show and tell you that you do not have to give up drinking wine in order to lose weight. All SYLTBAR Sparkling and still Fine Wines are the best examples for it. Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco, Mrs SYLTBAR Sparkling Rose, SYLTBAR Cashmere Cabernet Franc, SYLTBAR Silk Friulano, SYLTBAR White Linen Pinot Grigio and SYLTBAR Junior Ramato Pinot Grigio are all Vegan, very low on Sulfites, Sugar and Calories. These are all advantages which avoid gaining weight.
Wines have a bad Reputation for Weight Loss
We can assure you that only drinking a glass or two of wine isn’t going to prevent you from dropping those excess pounds. There are different other reasons which can definitely have an impact on your weight loss wish. One of them of course is that you should know or find out about the content of the wine you consume. For example Sweet Wines including the Sparkling Moscato contain a lot of sugar and calories which of course support the fact that you gain weight. Many Red and White Wines unfortunately carry the same or even more amount of it which consequences weight gaining too. Another reason is that a lot of people tend to eat more and even unhealthy after having
consumed some glasses of wine. Enjoying some glasses of Red Wine with a Pizza or Pasta is much easier and more fun than just eating it. This is often followed by a nice Ice Cream dessert paired with a Sweet wine or similar. The combination of enjoying Wine and heavy or fat containing food of course has a negative impact on your weight loss goals.
Therefore we highly recommend that you practice mindful eating to develop a better sense of the caloric and nutritional values of food. On top of it you can develop a mindset of enjoying food as a nutritional tool to have much more control over both your food and alcohol intake even after having consumed 1 or 2 glasses of wine. Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco and the Mrs Sparkling Rose both contain less of 2 Grams of residual fruit sugar per 750ml bottle which has been tested and confirmed by the Miami Diabetes Research Institute. These two are the lowest sugar contents compared to 80 other Sparkling Wine brands and names including Champagne, Prosecco, Cava and other Sparkling Wines. Consuming SYLTBAR wines is your best choice to be successful when it comes to not gaining weight.
How Alcohol Acts in Your Body
Alcohol including wine is a drug which can effect our body in many ways. Once swallowed, alcohol is rapidly absorbed into the blood and moves to all parts of the body. The liver breaks down most of the alcohol at an average rate of one standard drink per hour. A small amount of alcohol leaves our body through the skin and our breath. The amount of alcohol in the blood at any time varies depending on the amount, the strength and how quickly the alcohol is consumed by us. Individual factors also contribute, such as body type, age, gender and how well the liver can break down alcohol to use for energy.
SYLTBAR are the best Wines for Weight Loss
We all know that there is a huge difference in calorie and carbohydrate counts among wine varieties. If your goal is to lose weight, the best wines to enjoy are the lower calorie count ones which only have a minimal impact on your daily nutrition. The best wine for weight loss are the dry ones such as the 2 SYLTBAR Pinot Grigio’s White Linen and Junior Ramato, the SYLTBAR Cashmere Cabernet Franc, the SYLTBAR Silk Friulano and of course both SYLTBAR Sparkling Wines Mr and Mrs SYLTBAR.

Successful Weight Loss Strategy
After having found out in which way alcohol and food can influence your body we can set up a strategy for our weight loss goals.
Do not excess your drinking habitude which will automatically lead to weight gain. The danger is the combination of consuming too many food and alcohol calories.
Also do not forget that anything you eat while drinking alcohol may have a bigger impact on your weight than when you’re not drinking. Instead of having a glass of wine for dinner it is very useful to have an earlier dinner and then you enjoy the wine you have chosen an hour or two after you eat. This consequences that your body will start digesting the meal you had. Another useful method is to drink your wine in useful portions. Enjoy a glass of wine which contains 4-5 ounces instead of 7-8 ounces. Measuring your serving is a very useful and helpful method to do something which your body will thank you.
There is even more methods which support your goal to control your weight and lose some. For example instead of drinking 3 – 5 glasses of wine per hour you just enjoy 1 glass per hour which will definitely support your weight goals.
This method offers your body plenty of time to process the alcohol and prevents you from entering the phase of lowered inhibitions. A great way of still enjoying but also controlling your consumption of wine. Did you already make resolutions for the 2021 New Year this year ?

You don't need to cut Sparkling Wine from your Diet
There are so many opportunities to consume alcohol. It can be birthday parties or celebrating Christmas, New Years Eve, Thanksgiving or other celebration days. Let us face it. Consuming too much of wine and especially the wrong sugary one often create hangover and migraine which are unpleasant and more importantly very unhealthy. Therefore we highly recommend to drink and enjoy Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco, Mrs SYLTBAR Sparkling Rose and the SYLTBAR Fine Wines, which are all “YOUR HAPPY HEALTHY DAILY JUICE.” Why ? The simple reason for it is that you do not need a special occasion or a celebration day to enjoy SYLTBAR. Just open a bottle and drink it even without food.
Here are some additional recommendations. To stay in good shape and hydrated enjoy a glass of water between every alcoholic drink which you consume. We recommend Fiji water which for us is the best combination to enjoy it before, in between or after having consumed SYLTBAR Sparkling and/or SYLTBAR Fine Wines. Scientists have found out that drinking alcohol influences how the brain responds to food aromas increasing your food intake. Therefore enjoy a healthy snack before you have your first drink, and stock your party with nutritious food, to help keep hunger at a certain low level. As a matter of fact some alcoholic drinks have less impact on your health and wellness goals than other ones. Skip creamy cocktails as often as possible. 300-400 calories per 6 oz glass is not an exception but about 6 – 8 times more calories compared to a 6 oz glass of Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco which only contains 49 calories. It should always be your decision to drink low alcohol wines and also beer. It makes a huge difference.
Our final recommendation for you to achieve your weigh goals is to make sure that you have a bite to eat before you start drinking which contains healthy fats and carbohydrate. Both of it will definitely slow down your absorption of the alcohol you consume. We would like to mention it one more time. Enjoy a glass of water ideally Fiji prior to start drinking your first glass of wine. This definitely always helps.
