A fat burning fruit? Is it possible? Is there such a thing as a fat burning fruit? I am skeptical, but what is behind this claim? Here is the deal:
You already know grapes are low in calories (about 62 per cup), but they can help you stay slim in other ways too, say researchers at the University of Ulm in Germany. How can grapes turn into a fat burning fruit? It is all about resveratrol.
Resveratrol, a compound found in the fruit, was shown to keep pre-fat cells (called preadipocytes) from increasing in number and stop them from turning into mature fat cells. Red and purple versions (as well as red wine) are rich in the compound.
So does this mean that grapes can help you lose weight? I do not think so. [source: Shape]
