Good news for anyone that prefers Cabernet over cardio: Drinking two glasses of wine before bed could actually help you lose weight, according to recent studies from Washington State University and Harvard Medical School.
The reason is thanks to a substance called resveratrol. The compound, which is found in red wine, was shown to help convert “white fat” into the energy burning “beige fat”, which is easier to burn off. Even lifestyle guru Tim Ferris claims that two glasses of wine before bed each night helped him achieve his ripped physique.
In fact, drinking at least two glasses a day can help beat obesity by 70%.
Scientists say it works best at night because the calories from wine help keep you full and reduce the urge to binge on a late night snack, which is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to weight gain.
So who are we to argue with science? Drink up!
And to kick the hangover, I recommend FitVine Wine. With zero residual sugar and way fewer sulfides, drinking FitVine means much less of a hangover!
