Scientists have suggested that two glasses of wine before bed could actually help you lose weight.

The studies come from Washington State University and Harvard Medical School and explain that there is a polyphenol called “resveratrol” in red wine that lends us a hand in the weight loss department.

This resveratrol converts white fat into “obesity-fighting” beige fat, which is much easier for the body to break down, shares The Sun.

Studies have also suggested that resveratrol suppresses your appetite so you won’t fancy eating as much anyway.

Recently we shared that Australian experts agree not enough evidence to suggest an occasional beverage is harmful to the baby. Read more on that HERE.

  • the picture shows a woman holding a glass of WHITE wine, however the article says that there is a polyphenol called “resveratrol” in RED wine that lends us a hand in the weight loss department.


  • Sounds good – and less stressed ????


  • Two glasses for me is a bit too much


  • Like this new research – hope it stays around for quite a while.


  • Fingers crossed….
    Looks like I’ll be waking up afew kilos lighter tomorrow hahaha


  • I wish I liked drinking alcohol. There seem to be lots of benefits :)


  • I’m not an alcohol drinker, but my understanding is that red wine has the best health benefits. In small amounts it is supposedly good for your heart


  • Not a drinker so not applicable to me. Glad it helps some.


  • Not a habit I would personally take on – will stick with walking and balanced food intake.

    • All good things in moderation is the key to being happy and healthy which includes a tipple!


  • Yes, I knew red wine has it’s health benefits. I always used to drink red wine while living in Europe, but switched to white since I moved to Oz. Maybe I should make an effort to try drinking red again.
    The article suggests red wine and yet the picture shows a lady with a glass of white wine !

    • That’s true. Good of you to notice that!!


  • I’m not a red wine fan. Why is drinking vodka never beneficial for your health…lol.


  • Maybe it’s true, but as I don’t drink, I don’t find it a reason to start. ;-)
