Boost Your Body’s Fat-Blasting Ability

Isoflavones are found in soy foods, including:  soy milk, tofu, miso (a fermented soybean paste commonly used to make soups and salad dressings), edamame, natto (a fermented, cooked soy product), soy flour, soy yogurt, soy nuts, soy nut butter, soy sprouts, and tempeh.  Always choose organic soy products since soy is a heavily genetically-modified crop.

Resveratrol is found in purple or red grapes, purple grape juice, red wine, berries, and cherries.

Dr. DellaFera obtained the best results when people supplemented their diet with 100 mg of each isoflavones and resveratrol, both of which are readily available in most health food stores.

Avoid taking isoflavones or eating soy foods if you at high risk of breast cancer or have a soy allergy.  If you take the supplements, some experts suggest cutting back your daily dose to 25 mg each of isoflavones and resveratrol and add 25 mg more of each nutrient each week until you get to the 100 mg dose if you experience nausea.

Of course, always consult your holistically-minded physician before taking any new supplements.  This information is provided for educational purposes only and should not be construed as prescriptive.

So basically eat your soybeans and grapes? That doesn't seem to be asking for too much and I've sure love to make my fat cells explode and go away.

soy products are really good for health but you need to try and adapt well to it because it doesn't taste good in the mouth.
