If you’re looking to drop your extra weight (yep, you still haven’t worked off indulgent second and third helpings of your mother’s potato casserole from Christmas), and you love wine, then you’re in luck! Learn all about how drinking wine at night can prevent excess snacking, and help you achieve your weight loss goals in a shorter amount of time. Drink up, and slim down!
The Wine Diet May Be the Diet You’ve Been Waiting For
As with anything in life, moderation is key. That’s why the cabbage soup diet never works – who can eat that much cabbage soup, day after day? The same rule applies for wine consumption. A little bit of wine per night can go a long way. Is night time wine drinking the right diet plan for you? It may be, if:
· You can’t seem to shed unwanted pounds from your belly;
· You sabotage your weight loss efforts with night time snacking; or
· You have a healthy diet and overall lifestyle, but you want to lose those last five pounds, and have reached a weight loss plateau.
Whether you have pounds to lose, or you simply want to boost your antioxidant consumption, wine before bed can help you lose weight, strengthen your immune system and even help you achieve that relaxing, night time routine you need for a solid night’s sleep!
Science Shows Wine Before Bed Helps You Lose Weight
A 2015 study done by Washington State University demonstrated that a chemical found in red wine (by the name of resveratrol) has been shown to help people lose weight—thanks to the conversion from white fat to ‘beige fat’ (the type of fat that is less stubborn, and easier to lose.) Red wine has also shown an ability curb nighttime snacking, which will help you lose weight as you lower your overall daily caloric intake.
However, this doesn’t mean that you can pound the drinks back, or down a bottle while watching a movie on TV. It does mean that you can sip on a glass of red wine (not to exceed two 5 ounce glasses per night.)
If you don’t like the taste of wine or can’t drink it for any other reason, that’s ok. Doctors recommend that you snack on grapes, strawberries or blueberries—which all contain the compound found in red wine, resveratrol.
Enjoy red wine without the guilt, and in the process, take advantage of a handy (and tasty!) tool that will accelerate your weight loss, burn fat, and finally put an end to night time snacking for good!
