Study Proves Drinking Wine Before Bedtime Can Help You Lose Weight
To anyone who’s counting down the clock to popping open a bottle of wine, we have some news that you’re really going to love.
Wine isn’t just a tasty tipple to while away the work-life stress, it’s now apparently the latest tool to help you in your weight loss challenges.
Now new research from Washington State University and Harvard points to the chemicals in wine stunting your fat cells from gaining more fat.
According to researchers, there is a chemical in wine called resveratrol, which works in the body by stopping fat cells from gaining more fat.
The same research proved that drinking half a bottle a day can help beat obesity by 70%.
So how can gulping down a glass help you stay trim?
The team found that drinking wine at night helped people feel fuller and reduced the chance of late night snacking – which is one of the biggest culprits to weight gain.
The research was then backed up by a second study from Harvard’s weight gain study of 20,000 people - which revealed that out of all of those that gained a large amount of weight, none of them were drinkers.
So bottoms up, to keep your weight down.
