So, we all know that alcohol is a major contributor to weight gain and most nutritionist recommend we cut it from our diets when trying to shed those pounds.

But what if there was a drink that could actually help you lose weight?

Well, a new study has found just that – Tequila.

According to research presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, the spirit could even help lower your blood sugar as well.

See, tequila is made from the sugars that naturally occur in the agave plant.

These sugars, called agavins, are non-digestible, and thus act more like dietary fibre.

According to The Independent, Dr. Mercedes G. López said, ''Agavins are not expensive and they have no known side effects, except for those few people who cannot tolerate them.''

She also explained how agavins are the best sugars to support the growth of healthy microbes in the mouth and intestines.

And get this – they can even make you feel fuller for longer, meaning you'll eat less throughout the day.

Now, we're not saying you should swap that spoon of sugar in your morning cuppa for a shot of tequila, but this study might be worth considering the next time you hit the bar.

We weren't aware that deep fried tequila was a thing, but our lives have changed for the better since the discovery of this recipe.

It combines two of our favourite things: cake and booze… all wrapped up into one deep-fried cube of goodness. 

That is why we decided to share this life-changing recipe with you all.

Enjoy…

What you'll need:

Sponge cake

Tequila

Oil for frying

Powdered Sugar

Lime zest

What you'll do:

Just cube up the cake into small squares (shot size)

Dip it quickly into the tequila (important: the more you dip..the stronger they will be)

Place them into a 350 degree pot of 2 inches of oil.

Fry them until they’re golden on all sides. 

Let them cool, and sprinkle lime zest and powdered sugar on them.

We'll admit that we like the odd shot or two on a night out, and when it comes down to it, tequila is probably everyone's first choice.

Some love it, some hate it, but either way it goes down with a sting and makes you dance all night long. Win-win, right?

So, when we heard that the drink has actual health benefits, it's safe to say we jumped for joy.

According to Science Daily, a new study which has been carried out in Mexico has found that a substance found in tequila – the blue variety of agave tequilana – is good for you!

The drink "has substances capable of improving the absorption of calcium and magnesium, essential minerals to maintain bone health."

Dr. Mercedes Lopez from the Centre for Research and Advanced Studies said, "the consumption of fructans contained in the agave, in collaboration with adequate intestinal micriobiota, promotes the formation of new bone, even with the presence of osteoporosis."

It is believed that this new find means doctors will be able to use an alternative treatment for osteoporosis.

Selena Gomez fronted a good girl image for a long time during her Disney days, but now that she's an adult, it's clear she wants to let loose and have fun from now on.

TMZ shared a video of Selena in a Texas bar over the weekend – and let's just say she looks like she's having the time of her life.

According to the website, Sel was drinking shots of Tequila and when Rihanna's new song Work came on the radio, she couldn't help but jump up and dance on the tables.

Honestly, she reminds us a little bit of, well… us after a few too many shots on a night out. And let's all be honest, we love her a little bit more than before now.
