When it comes to alcohol, I can be kind of picky. Starting around 18 years of age, I began this great quest into the world of alcohol, trying each and every kind, figuring out which ones I liked and didn’t like.
Now, after numerous incidents that left me sick and bedridden with hangovers from hell, I’ve decided that wine is my preferred alcoholic beverage.
Not only does it have twice the alcohol content as most beers, but it’s chock-full of antioxidants and researchers just found evidence that it can even help you lose weight if you drink it before bedtime.
Scientists from Washington State University and Harvard discovered a chemical in wine, called resveratrol, that helps the body’s fat cells from acquiring more fat. They found that drinking two glasses of wine a day can help lower your risk for obesity by about 70 percent.
Part of why wine is recommended in the evenings is that its calories help maintain your feeling of fullness, reducing your cravings to binge on foods late at night.
Another study out of the University of Denmark also revealed a distinct relationship between waistline and consumption of wine: people who drink wine everyday have slimmer waistlines than those who do not.
And, if you needed any more reason to go grab a few bottles of wine, Harvard’s study on weight gain found that out of 20,000 people tested, every single one that gained a significant amount of weight did not drink alcohol!
So, now that you have a bit of science backing you up, don’t get embarrassed by your half-a-bottle-of-wine-every-night habit; it’s something to be celebrated!
