Two Glasses Of Wine Before Bed Helps You Lose Weight, Science Says

A health trend I can get behind

It’s time to ditch that evening chamomile tea for a smooth Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Drinking two glasses of red wine before bed could actually help you lose weight, according to two new studies by Washington State and Harvard Medical School.

Apparently, there’s a polyphenol called resveratrol in red wine that transforms ‘white fat’ into ‘beige fat’ (beige fat is much easier to burn off), say researchers at WSU. Even crazier, the Harvard study, which looked at 20,000 women over the course of 13 years, determined that those who drank two glasses of wine daily were 70 per cent less likely to be overweight.

For real.

Another study by Harvard Medical School found that resveratrol also helps suppress your appetite, which means that after a glass or two of red, you’re much less likely to raid the fridge for a late-night snack. 

Not a fan of a red drip before you snooze? Other major sources of resveratrol include blueberries, strawberries and grapes. 

Cheers to that!
